APC Governors, Party Leaders Meet Buhari in London


"The President was very cheerful and has not lost any bit of his sense of humor", said Imo state governor Rochas Okorocha in a press statement issued Sunday by presidential spokesman Femi Adesina.

"When asked to react to all the negative things being said about him, the president just laughed, describing such negative reports as lies", Adesina quoted Okorocha as saying.

Meanwhile, the Ekiti state Governor, Ayo Fayose has called on Buhari to resign, alleging that he is incapacitated.

State governors at the meeting include Tanko Al-Makura (Nasarawa), Nasir El-Rufai (Kaduna), and Yahaya Bello (Kogi); as well as the APC National Chairman, John Oyegun among other leaders of the party.

The silence on Buhari's health has led to a flurry of speculation about his fitness for office and potential successor, prompting cryptic warnings from the president's camp.

The Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo had earlier told Nigerians that Buhari is strong and recuperating.

He had, however, declined to go into details about the hour-long conversation with the President. What is clear though is that President Buhari's health is an important subject to many Nigerians and nothing short of full disclosure may be sufficient to rest the animated debate.
