Mr. Dave Umahi, Governor of Ebonyi state, who was among the entourage that went to see president Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday with other six selected governors has stated that Buhari is not treating a ‘mere malaria’ and as such did not tell them when he (Buhari) will come back.
He made this known to newsmen via a telephone conversation between correspondent from a leading Media House in Nigeria and Gov. Umahi.
According to Umahi, “We met a cheerful President whose level of recovery is a miracle. We know he will soon return home as soon as his doctors certify him to do so. What he’s treating is not mere malaria that we can say he will return today or tomorrow.
Speaking further he said “we are happy and we thank God for what we saw. It is contrary to the pictures people are painting on the social media. The President we saw is recuperating well and we are happy for that. It is even better that, we as members of the opposition party, are among the entourage. Nigerians should continue to pray for the President” he finally said.
