President Muhammadu Buhari had earlier spent 49 days in London over his ill-health and returned to the UK for medical follow-up on May 7.
Meanwhile, the former governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, has informed Nigerians that President Buhari’s health has improved considerably, revealing when the President will return to Nigeria.
Kalu said Buhari’s health had improved when he visited him in the UK last week and urged Nigerians to stop spreading messages of hate and division about the President’s health. The former claimed that the president may likely return to the country before June 12.
“I went to Washington to visit some business partners and from there stopped at London to see Mr. President, who is recovering very fast.
“I am excited over the state of health of President Buhari despite the hate messages people were spreading about him. I am disappointed with the statement coming from some Nigerians about the health of Mr. President.
“The messages some Nigerians have been spreading in the social media is unhealthy. I am calling on Nigerians to have a change of heart. Being a President does not mean, you cannot be sick, the hate messages are becoming too much. There must be good sense of tolerance among the ethnic groups, we are all one.”
