I feel I could go home but I've to obey my doctors

PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has said that even though his health has greatly improved and wishes to return home, he is waiting for his doctors to determine when exactly he could leave.

The aides are Femi Adesina, senior special adivser on media and publicity, Lai Mohammed, minister of information; Garba Shehu, senior special assistant on media and publicity; Lauretta Onochie, personal assistant on digital/online media and Abike Dabiri-Erewa, senior special assistant on diaspora matters.

He stressed that "but I've learnt to obey my doctor's orders, rather than be the one issuing the orders".

The former general, 74, has been in the United Kingdom since May 7 for treatment of an undisclosed illness, fueling concern about his ability to serve the remainder of his term that ends in 2019. Meanwhile, Goodluck Obi, the convener of the protest, who spoke on behalf of the demonstrators, said: "The group has absolute faith and trust in President Buhari's administration and not machination of corruption and destabilisation".

Buhari left for the British capital on May 7 on what is his latest medical trip. The team's visit came amidst calls for the President to return to the country and resume duties or resign. This is the third Nigerian delegation visiting the President in the last few weeks. "I've now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed".

When asked about how he felt about the theories about his health, President Buhari who said he has followed events in the country in his absence was "amused", according to the statement.

The president, while also thanking well-wishers from within Nigeria and across Africa, said: "What we did in The Gambia early this year fetched us a lot of goodwill on the African continent".

He, however, thanked Nigerians for praying for him and expressed the hope that he would soon return home.
