In a telephone conversation following the meeting of governors and leaders with him in London, Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, said the President was very cheerful and has not lost any bit of his sense of humour.

According to the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina,  the governor said the party delegation spent more than an hour with President Buhari over lunch.

Okorocha declared that it was very clear from the discussions that the President has been following developments at home very closely.

He said the President was delighted to receive the delegation and asked each governor about affairs in his state and also asked the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, about the state of the railways.

When asked to react to all the negative things being said about him, the President just laughed, describing such negative reports as lies revealing that the President was completely unperturbed by the cocktail of lies. He, instead, sent his best wishes to Nigerians.

According to the governor, Nigerians don’t have to worry at all, adding that President Buhari will be back as soon as the doctors give him the green light.

“By our visit to London today, the merchants of lies have been put out of business and Nigerians will not buy the garbage they have been selling. All those who look up to fake news can find better use for their time,” Governor Okorocha noted.

Governors Umaru Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa; Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna; Yahaya Bello of Kogi; and APC National Chairman, Chief John Oyegun, were also in the delegation.
