Buhari Speaks From London, Says 'I've Learnt To Obey Orders'

"I feel I could go home, but the doctors are in charge".

Buhari left for the British capital on May 7 on what is his latest medical trip.

The "resume of resign" also called the #OurMumuDonDo started a protest on Monday, August 6, calling on the president to either resume his duties as President or resign.

"Here, the doctor is absolutely in charge", he told his media team that visited him on Saturday in London.

To convince Nigerians that he is strong, the president walked like a soldier in front of his media team who all laughed.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the president said his obedience to his doctors helped in improving his health.

President Muhammadu Buhari has said Minister for Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed is working very hard despite his absence at work. "I've now learnt to obey orders, rather than being obeyed", lightening up the mood at the meeting.

On how he felt hearing different conjectures about his health, Buhari said he followed events at home closely, lauding Nigerian television stations, and the media generally, for keeping him informed.

President Buhari has spent more time since the beginning of 2017 in Britain than in Nigeria. "May God reward them".

Others were Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, Senior Special Assistant Media & Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, and the Personal Assistant Digital/Online Media Lauretta Onochie.

Nigeria's presidency released images showing a jovial Buhari, a move that will hopefully reassure Nigerians who have been concerned about their President's well being that he is indeed fit enough to continue serving them.

"The crowd is also expected to stage a walk from the Unity Fountain to the Presidential Villa for the presentation of a position paper on behalf of the participating organizations to the Acting President, His Excellency, Prof".
