Osinbajo - Buhari Will Return to Nigeria Sooner Than Expected

Osinbajo warns Nigerians against divisive tendency

It is all part of the fallout of Tuesday's London meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, sources said, pleading not to be named. He is recuperating very well and we had a very long conversation. He is doing well and he is recuperating fast. I think we should really expect him back very shortly.

"Deadlines aren't a very good thing but as I said he is recuperating fast; we are expecting him very shortly, much sooner than you will expect".

I'm not going to prove that (the President is recuperating) to Nigerians.

When Buhari left Abuja for London on May 7, his second trip overseas for health reason, he handed over power to Osinbajo, who according to the constitution would assume the presidency should Buhari be unable to continue.

Speaking to State House correspondents shortly before the commencement of the Federal Executive Council meeting, the acting president stated that he had an extensive discussion with the president on a wide range of issues for about an hour.

However, Osinbajo, who said he had a meeting with Buhari for about an hour, said he had opted to visit the president just to see how he was faring and equally brief him on emerging developments in the country.

"We are talking about the president of about 170 million people". We are expecting him very shortly.

Although he said the two ministers-designate would soon be inaugurated, the Acting President said he had no date in mind. "Nigerians want to see their President", he noted.

"The fact is, the President is sick, incapacitated and he's not in good condition".

First Lady Aisha Buhari also on a visit to the President in London, in a comment on a facebook post by Senator Shehu Sani, said the president would return soon. There is no iota of truth that the president is in good condition.

According to Vanguard, Fayose also said if the situation isn't handled properly, he will release 11 damaging pictures of the president to justify his stand on Buhari's state of health and stop the ruling party's deceit to the public.

"What Nigerians desire now is a live video of President Buhari addressing them, not a visit in which no pictorial (photo or video) was made available to the public".
