‘Doctors Are In Charge Here Not Me’, President Buhari Says As Media Team Visits London [PHOTOS]

As uproar continue to dominate the atmosphere in Nigeria in spite of the 97 days of President Muhammadu Buhari’s absence in the home-country for medical attention, the media team have visited the ailing President in UK.


While Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed led the media team comprising of Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina; Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr. Garba Shehu and Personal Assistant on Digital/Online Media, Lauretta Onochie; to visit Buhari in London, the President expressed he is well and even wishes to return to the country but only following the orders of his doctors by staying back.

His words were contained in the statement released by Mr. Femi Adesina concerning their visitation to the President today, August 12.

Quoting the president, the statement partly reads:

“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,” he said.

“I feel I could go home, but the doctors are in charge. I’ve now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed.”

Buhari also thanked Nigerians and everyone who has been praying for his recovery.

“What we did in The Gambia early this year fetched us a lot of goodwill on the African continent. It gave us a lot of latitude. I thank all those who are praying. May God reward them,” the president was quoted to have said.
