Africa's underdevelopment caused by terrorism – Buhari

The demystification of General Buhari

- 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.

According to the coalition, the solidarity walk became necessary following the recent and unfortunate political happenings in Nigeria bordering on the news peddled about the medical vacation of President Muhammadu Buhari.

That has sparked numerous protests, including demands that Buhari should resign, as well as calls for more transparency about the president's condition. "I have now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed", the president reportedly said.

"When told that prayers were going on fervently for him, not only in Nigeria, but all over Africa, and round the world, a delighted President said: 'What we did in The Gambia early this year fetched us a lot of goodwill on the African continent". It gave us a lot of latitude.

Buhari also received a Get Well Soon card signed by all 36 ministers of the country. This is the third Nigerian delegation visiting the President in the last few weeks. "May God reward them", the president.
