The Benue state governor Samuel Ortom on Thursday, July 27, said President Muhammadu Buhari is eager to return to Nigeria. Ortom said Buhari is eager to return once he completes his medical treatment in London.
He also said that the president is showing ‘great’ improvement in his health which he says is an indication that God is answering the prayers of millions of Nigerians over Buhari’s condition.
In a statement signed by his chief press secretary, Terver Akase, said President Buhari was in high spirits during the Nigerian Governor’s Forum visit to him at the Abuja House in London.
He further added that the president cracked jokes with the governors who visited.
“God has answered our prayers. It is one thing to pray and it is another for God to answer; so let us continue to pray. Our God is God of the beginning and the end.
As He is healing Mr President, it is our duty to pray so that God will consummate the healing so that our President can come back. “He is eager to return and is very grateful to Nigerians for praying for him and he wishes us well,” Ortom said.
Ortom added that the president showed concern over the current security situation in Benue state and how he (the governor) was addressing them.
