Group Threathens Nationwide Shutdown over Buhari's Absence

Buhari meets APC Governors and chieftains

In an earlier letter, President Buhari had also accepted his nomination as leader of the "2018 AU Theme on the Fight Against Corruption", which came from African leaders at the 29th Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the AU in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on July 4, 2017.

The actor described the emergency meeting held in London on Sunday as a house warming of new seat of government in Abuja house, London.

He further explained the reason for the visit against the backdrop that it had been reported that President Buhari was recuperating, he said it was the best time for the president to receive visitors as he was recovering.

The special adviser quoted the Imo State governor as saying that the party delegation spent more than an hour with Buhari over lunch, adding that it was very clear from the discussions that he followed developments at home very closely.

The absences and lack of information have caused tensions in Africa's most populous nation, which faces an ongoing threat from the Boko Haram extremist insurgency and has one of the world's worst humanitarian crises with millions malnourished. Yet it faces numerous pressing challenges in the short-term.




The refusal of officials to disclose details of Buhari's illness has triggered fierce speculation in Nigerian media and on social media over the past few months about his ailment and whether he will seek a second term in the 2019 election. He had been whisked away to a German hospital for treatment during the 2007 presidential campaign.

He said, "Our colleagues are going to London to see the President".

"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".

It is believed that the President will return to the country by next month to continue his duties.

A human rights group four days ago, filed a suit at the Federal High Court seeking to have him removed as President given the number of days he has been away.
