President Buhari has received an entourage of party Chiefs at the Abuja House in London. Part of the delegation was the strong man of South-West politics Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and APC Chieftain Chief Bisi Akande
The President had embarked on a medical leave which was initially supposed to last 10 days but had to seek for an extension via the National Assembly.
The President said he needed more time to run a fresh cycle of medical tests on the advice off his doctors.
The visit of the All Progressive Congress heavyweights will go a long way to dispel earlier insinuations that the president has been incommunicado as being peddled in some quarters.
Meanwhile Speaker of the House of Representatives Hon. Yakubu Dogara has revealed that he spoke with President Buhari over the phone on Wednesday night.
The Speaker is the first public official outside of the State House to confirm hearing from Mr. Buhari, who has not been seen since departing the country nearly three weeks ago.
Dogara said the main issue the Presidnt talked about was what the Executive/ Legislature must do to ensure food security for all Nigerians.
This follows several statements from top officials of the administration beginning with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo that the President was in top shape.
Amid speculations over the president’s health, Mr. Osinbajo said on Tuesday that the president was “hale and hearty” and that he spoke to him by phone.
“Let me first say the president is hale and hearty,” Mr. Osinbajo told reporters in the State House. “I spoke to him just this afternoon and we had a fairly long conversation, he is in good shape and very chatty.
