The Presidency announced on Tuesday that Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, has visited ailing former Vice-President Alex Ekwueme, in London.

This was stated in a statement released to journalists in Abuja by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.

Mr. Shehu said Mustapha conveyed Buhari’s goodwill message to the former leader during the visit.

The statement read, “The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha has conveyed President Muhammadu Buhari’s goodwill message to former Vice President, Dr Alex Ekwueme in a London hospital.

“Upon approval by President Buhari, Dr Ekwueme was rushed to the hospital in an air ambulance in what was described as a critical condition.

“The SGF, who was in London before Dr Ekwueme’s arrival, was received by his spouse, Mrs Helen Ekwueme on behalf of the Ekwueme family.

“Mr. Mustapha told the Ekwueme family that the President and all Nigerians are praying for the speedy recovery of the elder statesman, adding that he believed that the doctors were doing their best.”

Mr. Ekwueme is currently receiving medical treatment in London after he was flown abroad on the orders of President Muhammadu Buhari.
