President Buhari Remains Cheerful – Gov. Okorocha


BY AMOS DUNIA, ABUJA – Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina has given insight into the meeting that took place between National Leaders and some governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC), with President Muhammadu Buhari in London on Sunday.

Adesina, who divulged the telephone conversation he had with Governor Rochas Okorocha, quoted the Chairman of the APC Governors’ Forum as saying that President Buhari is very cheerful and has not lost any bit of his sense of humour.

Adesina further quoted Okorocha as saying; “the party delegation spent more than an hour with President Buhari over lunch, and it was very clear from the discussions that he followed developments at home very closely.

According to Adesina; “Governor Okorocha said the President was delighted to receive the delegation and asked each governor about affairs in his state. He 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.

Governor Okorocha said President Buhari was completely unperturbed by the cocktail of lies. He, instead, sent his best wishes to Nigerians.

“Nigerians don’t have to worry at all. 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,” Adesina quoted Governor Okorocha as having said.

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.
