Buhari reportedly said, “I feel I could go home, but the doctors are in charge. I have now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed.”
According to a statement by the President's Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the President made this known at the Abuja House, London, United Kingdom.
“I have learnt to obey my doctor’s orders rather than be the one issuing the orders. Here, the doctor is absolutely in charge,” the President was quoted as saying.
According to Adesina, Buhari said, “I feel I could go home, but the doctors are in charge. I have now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed.”
Adesina said the President sent appreciation to all Nigerians, expressing hope that he would be with them soon.
Buhari received members of his media team led by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed at the Abuja house in London.
