Adesina, who spoke to the delegation while they were with the president, via telephone, quoted one of them, Governor Rochas Okorocha as saying that Buhari was “very cheerful and has not lost any bit of his sense of humour.

“The governor said that the party delegation spent more than an hour with Buhari over lunch, and that it was very clear from the discussions that he followed developments at home very closely.
“He said that the president was delighted to receive the delegation and asked each governor about affairs in his state.

“He, instead, sent his best wishes to Nigerians.’’

“Nigerians have no cause to worry at all as the president will be back as soon as the doctors give him the green light.
