'I'm ok' says Nigeria president after 3-month absence

'I'm ok' says Nigeria president after 3-month absence

Acknowledging the valued cooperation between Nigeria and Kenya in the fight against terrorism, Buhari commended the East African country for the recent successes recorded in tackling terrorism in the region.

"I feel I could go home, but the doctors are in charge, " Buhari told his media team, which traveled from Nigeria to visit him, according to a statement Saturday from Femi Adesina, a presidential spokesman.

Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism Lai Mohammed and Buhari's Senior Special Assistant (Foreign Affairs and Diaspora) Abike Dabiri-Erewa were also part of the president's guests.

Buhari said he was following events in Nigeria and understands that there are protests against his continued stay in London.

"No doubt, the violent disruption of the anti-Buhari rally ought to have embarrassed President Buhari who had advised President Yar'adua, in a similar situation, to step aside as he could no longer discharge the duties and functions of his office".

President Muhammadu Buhari, who has been away in London to treat an undisclosed ailment since May 7, has said he is now fit and only awaiting his doctor's order to return to his country."President Buhari says there is tremendous improvement in his health; indeed, he wishes to return home, 'but I've learnt to obey my doctor's orders, rather than be the one issuing the orders". I thank all those who are praying.

Throughout the week, a group of protesters led by rights activist, Dele Adeyanju, and maverick entertainer, Charles Oputa, caused a stir in Abuja with demonstrations calling for Buhari's return or resignation on moral grounds. "May God reward them", the president.

"We mean well for our president".

Photos released by the presidency show the 74-year-old standing outdoors in sunglasses and smiling as he holds a "Get well soon" card. The law enforcement agents gladly led them through with horses to the Presidential Villa into the waiting hands of officials.
