I want to return but
- Nigeria's president says he feels healthy enough to return home from London after three months away but says ultimately the decision is up to his doctors.
President Muhammadu Buhari says there is a tremendous improvement in his health, indeed, he wishes to return home, "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.
President Muhammadu Buhari says there is tremendous improvement in his health but he can not return home because his doctors have not cleared him to do so.
Minister of Information, Culture and Tourism Lai Mohammed and Buhari's Senior Special Assistant (Foreign Affairs and Diaspora) Abike Dabiri-Erewa were also part of the president's guests.
