Buhari’s Recovery Is A Miracle, Says Ebonyi Gov

The Governor of Ebonyi State, Mr. Dave Umahi, has
described the rate of the recovery of President
Muhammadu Buhari as a miracle.
Umahi, who is one of the seven governors that visited
the President in London yesterday night, told one of
Punch correspondents on the telephone from London,
that he and his colleagues were surprised with the level
of his (President) recovery.
Apart from Umahi, others governors in the entourage
are Udom Emmanuel (Akwa Ibom); Abdulaziz Yari
(Zamfara); Abiola Ajimobi (Oyo); Samuel Ortom
(Benue); Umar Ganduje (Kano); and Kashim Shettima
(Borno).
Six of the governors were chosen based on the six geo-
political zones in the country while the governor of
Zamfara State was picked because of his position as the
chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum.
Umahi, who was one of the two governors from the
opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, said that
it was difficult for members of the opposition to believe
what they were being told by the handlers of the
President that he was getting better.
He, however, said that he was happy, just like the other
six governors, that the President was making progress
and that he had improved very well.
The governor said the President would soon return to
the country as soon as his doctors certified him alright.
He said, “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.
“However, 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. “
Asked whether the President told them the likely date of
his return, he said no, adding that there was no need to
be too expectant, saying that the Acting President, Prof.
Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), was doing a good job.
“We don’t need to panic because we have a
hardworking acting President who is doing a fantastic
job. All we need to do as Nigerians is to continue to
pray for the President,” the governor added.
