Buhari’s illness has taken a toll on his health, one of the governors who visited him says (Photos)


A delegation from the Nigerian Governors’ Forum visited President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, July 26 at the Abuja House, London.

The delegation is led by the NGF chairman, Governor Abdulaziz Yari and includes Dave Umahi (Ebonyi), Udom Emmanuel (Akwa Ibom), Kashim Shettima (Borno), Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo), Umar Ganduje (Kano) and Samuel Ortom (Benue).

One of the governors reportedly said this evening he was delighted to see him in person after so many weeks of uncertainty.

He told SaharaReporters anonymously that the delegation of seven governors found Buhari to be “much better shape than earlier speculated,” and in full control of his faculties.

“Yes, the illness had a taken a toll on his health,” he said, describing Buhari’s walk as “okay”.

Of the president’s speech, “I did not notice any remarkable change in his voice,” the governor declared.

The governor further said that members of his delegation believed Buhari should follow the advice of his doctors and not be stampeded into rushing back home.

“After all, he has left the country in a very capable hand, fiercely loyal, competent, cerebral and unambitious,” he said, referring to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.

On Sunday, governors Rochas Okorocha (Imo State), Nasir El-Rufai (Kaduna State), Yahaya Bello (Kogi State) and Umaru Tanko al-Makura (Nasarawa State) visited the president in London.


Wednesday marked the 80th day of Buhari's “medical vacation” in the United Kingdom.
