Buhari no longer sick, he is well now – Lawmaker, Abu Ibrahim

The Senator representing Katsina South, Senator Abu Ibrahim, has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari is now well and strong enough to lead the nation.

Buhari returned to Nigeria after a 49-day medical vacation abroad in March.

Speaking with State House correspondents on Friday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja the lawmaker said, “I am very happy, I am really thrilled and quite confident that he (Buhari) is very well now.”

He recalled how he joined some other stakeholders from Katsina State including the state governor, Alhaji Aminu Masari, and traditional rulers to pledge their loyalty to the President on Thursday evening.

The Senator said, “The Thursday visit to the President was like a family affair.

“Our father and elder brother (the President) was sick and it is normal for members of the family to come and greet him as he has returned, so it was a normal family affair.

“The governor led a train with the two Emirs of Kastina and Daura, the three Senators -Senator Buka from Katsina East; Senator Keffi from Katsina Central and myself from Katsina South.

“So we greeted him and we are happy that he is well and he is back and I am sure he is fit enough to take the mantle of leadership.

“We reaffirmed our loyalty to him and he too thanked us for our support and the usual advice we give him from time to time.”
