Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, says President Buhari is in high spirit and would soon return home. Osinbajo paid President Buhari a visit in London yesterday evening. Speaking to state house correspondents just before the Federal Executive Council meeting, Osinbajo said;
“First you know I went to see him to check up on him and find out how he was doing. I have been speaking to him on the phone and I thought it would be a good thing to go and see him and check up on how he was doing and also to brief him on developments back at home. We had a very good time. We had a very good conversation on wide ranging issues. He is in very good spirit. He is recuperating very quickly and he is doing very well”.
Asked to speak on the state of President Buhari’s health, Osinbajo said “As I have said, he is in very high spirit. He is recuperating very quickly. We had a very long conversation. We spoke for well over an hour. His humor is all there. He is doing well”.
On when President Buhari is expected back home, the acting poresident said “I think very soon. Very very soon. I think we should expect him back very soon. As I said, he is recuperating very very fast”.
On when the two Ministers cleared by the senate would be sworn in, Osinbajo said he is not in a position to give a date for that.
