Just in: PHOTO: Buhari meets members of his media team in London

Omokri to Garba Shehu Stop boasting about invisible feats… time for propaganda long gone

In a bid to convince Nigerians that the Presidential Media Team was with President Muhammadu Buhari in the United Kingdom on Saturday, a video of the visit has been published on Aso Rock's Facebook page.

The visit by his media team is the fourth such delegation from Nigeria in the last few weeks as tension mounts back home over the health status of the 74-year-old leader.

The minister said the President exchanged banters with his aides and has not lost his sense of humour.

Lauretta Onochie were among those who visited him.

In a statement released in Abuja and signed by its Secretary General, I.A Waiya, the walk, it said, would commence from the Unity Fountain to the Presidential Villa for the presentation of a position paper on behalf of the participating organisations to the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osibanjo.

Buhari, who spoke 96 days after he commenced the latest round of his medical vacation overseas, yesterday, was quoted as saying: "I have learnt to obey my doctors' orders rather than being the one issuing the orders". Later, the visiting team issues a statement below claiming the President said he was Ok, but wouldn't say when he will return to duty until his doctors determine he was fit enough. "I've now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed", he is quoted as saying. It gave us a lot of latitudes.

President Buhari sends his well wishes to all Nigerians and hopes he will be with them soon. "May God reward them", he said in reply to the information that he was being prayed for across the continent.

Is there a cabal preventing him from returning or holding Nigeria hostage as it was during the Yar'adua administration?
