Acting President Yemi Osinbajo says President Muhammadu Buhari is recuperating fast and will soon return from London where he has been on medical vacation since May 7.
Osinbajo said this today while fielding questions from State House correspondents on the outcome of his Tuesday’s meeting with President Buhari in the United Kingdom.
Asked what exactly he discussed with Buhari, Osinbajo said he went to check on the president, find out how he was doing and brief him on the developments in Nigeria.
The acting president stressed that the president was in a very high spirit, recuperating fast and would return to Nigeria very shortly.
Osinbajo said he had a very long conversation with the president and that he was even back to his normal humorous disposition.
“Well, first, as you know, I went to see him, I went to check on him, find out how he was doing. I had, of course, been speaking on the phone and I thought it would be a good thing to go and see him and, you know, generally check up on how he was doing and also to brief him on developments back at home.
“So, we had a very good time, we had a very good conversation on wide ranging issues and he is in very good spirits, he is recuperating very quickly and he is doing very well,” the acting president stated.
On Buhari’s state of health, Osinbajo said: “Well, as I have said, he is in very high spirits, he is recuperating very well and we had a very long conversation, we spoke for well over an hour and his humor is all there. He is doing well and he is recuperating fast.”
Asked when the president will be back home, the acting president responded: “I think very very shortly. Very shortly. I think we should really expect him back very shortly. Like I said, he is recuperating very fast and he is doing very very well.”
On whether Buhari will return home before 90 days of his departure for London, Osinbajo said it is not a good thing to give such a deadline.
“No no. Deadlines aren’t a very good thing, but as I said, he is recuperating fast, we are expecting him very shortly much sooner than you will expect,” he said.
