Chief John Odigie Oyegun, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said on Friday that only President Muhammadu Buhari’s medical team can decide when he would return to the country.
The APC chairman, however, said the President is recovering very fast.
Oyegun, who disclosed these to journalists at the end of a meeting between the APC National Working Committee (NWC) and governors, also said the party would not respond to claims by Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose, that the President was on life support in a London hospital.
He said: “We are glad to inform you that President Muhammadu Buhari is recovering in a very robust manner. We hope he takes it easy and when he comes back, I have no doubt at all that we will have a new and active period of activities.’’
On Fayose’s comment, he said “if I respond, I will be dignifying him. At the appropriate time, people will answer him; at the appropriate level and at the appropriate time. He is in a different world altogether.’’
He said the party’s leadership has confidence in President Buhari.
The meeting with the governors, he said x-rayed the state of the nation, ongoing agitation for its restructuring and inciting statements emanating from different parts of the country.
He said inciting statements capable of causing crises are not good “for the nation`s health, insisting that such statements have to be stopped.”
