Saraki, Dogara visit Buhari in London

Senate President Bukola Saraki and Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, are the latest set of delegation to visit President Muhammadu Buhari, in Abuja House, London.

The Presidency twitted the picture of the visit via its twitter handle Presidency Nigeria @NGRPresident.

Buhari has been away for 102 days in London seeking medical consultations with his doctors.

Buhari had told his media team led by Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed when they visited that he had improved tremendously in his health, adding that though he wished to return home, he has learnt to obey doctor’s orders.

A group known as “OurMumuDonDo”, led by the convener, Deji Adeyanju, and one of its leaders, Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy, had staged protests asking the President to either resume work or resign and also make public the cause of his illness.

The group was forced to postponed its protest indefinitely when they were attacked on Tuesday after they took the protest to Wuse market, Abuja.

Another group, under the platform of Center for Civil Society and Justice, CCSJ, led by Comrade Prince Goodluck Obi Nelson, had also staged protests, saying the President should be left alone to recover fully from his ailment and continue his fight against corruption.

President Buhari had earlier received delegation from the All Progressive Congress (APC) and that of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), assuring them that he was merely awaiting his doctors green light to return to the country.

In a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja, Presidential spokesman Femi Adesina had quoted the President as saying that there is tremendous improvement in his health, indeed, he wishes to return home, “but I’ve learnt to obey my doctor’s orders, rather than be the one issuing the orders. Here, the doctor is absolutely in charge.”

When the team expressed delight at how much his health had improved the President, he retorted: “I feel I could go home, but the doctors are in charge. I’ve now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed.”
