President Buhari is recovering very strongly- APC National Chairman

By Aanya Igomu

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari is recovering very strongly and ready to face his responsibilities to the nation.

The National Chairman of Nigeria’s governing party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, Mr. John Oyegun stated this while interacting with journalists at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja.

A few days ago, Mr. Oyegun led some national leaders of the APC to visit the president in London where he is receiving treatment.

The APC National Chairman explained that the worse is over for the President’s health.

“I can confirm that Mr. President is convalescing very strongly. Right now, all he is doing is having as much rest as he can to build up his energy, to build up his stamina. But the worst is certainly over. Mr. President is going to come back and he is going to face the responsibilities for which the people of this country have elected him. I am glad to say he is recovering beautifully.”

He called on people making horrid statements about the president’s health to respect the position of the president.

“When people cease to have respect for elders and cease to have respect for the fact that an elder statesman who is also President of this nation is going through a health challenge and seek to make fun of it, and seek to say things that are so totally unbecoming, it is really not worth commenting on.

But I am glad that as at Wednesday, even Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors went there and thank God, nice sober people, they were very excited at the pace of recovery of Mr. President. I hope that finally, even for the most hardened of political adversaries that common sense and common decency will finally prevail,” Oyegun said.

In response to the question on when the president will return, Mr. Oyegun said only the president could speak on that.
