Against the backdrop of reported clandestine moves by a cabal in the Presidency, headed by President Muhammadu Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, to undermine Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, Mr. Buhari has called on Nigerians to keep supporting Osinbajo. The president, who is still in the United Kingdom on medical leave, also asked Nigerians to continue to be strong in the face of challenges, supporting the Federal Government’s agenda.
The message was sent through the First Lady Aisha Buhari, who returned to Abuja yesterday morning from the United Kingdom where she visited her husband. A statement by the Director of Information in the Wife of the President’s Office, Suleiman Haruna, said Mrs. Buhari conveyed the appreciation of the President to Nigerians for their prayers.
The statement quoted her as saying that Mr. Buhari would soon return to Nigeria, as he is recuperating fast.
“Mr. President thanked the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, for his loyalty and called on Nigerians to continue to support the acting President in his effort to actualise the mandate of the All Progressives’ Congress (APC),” the First Lady said.
