ABUJA—Governors of Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, have restated their loyalty to President Muhammadu Buhari, saying his state of health was of no consequence to issues of state-craft.
According to the governors, the FEC meeting for which the president has been absent for some weeks now is not a must-attend for Mr Buhari.
“Mr President is 74 years old; at that age, it is possible to have one ailment or the other, even I, at 57 take medication for one ailment or the other. Our prayer is that the president gets better but the reason he has a Vice President is because of a time like this, it may not be as a result of sickness that he did not attend FEC, he may have had other pressing issues to attend to. I have not had to chair every State Executive Council in Kaduna state because the deputy governor is there, if I have other issues of greater priority to attend to.
“We are not worried yet or have any reason to be worried but I call on every Nigerian to join all of us to pray for the improved health of the President. It has improved in the last few weeks since he came back and we will continue to pray for his improved health”, he added.
