    Isha Allah, Buhari will return to Nigeria hale and hearty-Akiolu

     Rilwan Akiolu, Oba of Lagos Thursday visited Yemi Osinbajo, the acting president in Abuja.

    The mission of Akiolu from Lagos to Abuja was to attend a security meeting.  He was invited by the national assembly.But, due to the postponement of the meeting, the first class monarch decided to meet with state house correspondents.

    His words:  “I am a traditional ruler and I am a servant of the people, I am here to see the acting president.

    “We had a meeting here; I was invited by the senate and the house of representatives, Tuesday.

    “But unfortunately, it was cancelled and I decided to spend that time to see my former law lecturer to wish him and once more to convey to him the wishes and prayers of Lagos State people.

    “That, by the Grace of God, the Almighty Allah our president will return to us hale and hearty.

    “And all will be well with us in this country, provided all of us are sincere to cooperate with the government and tell the government what we feel: constructively and not destructive criticism that is all.


    The monarch described the orchestrated reactions to Buhari’s vacation as “very funny’’. “By the grace of God, our president will be back to all of us.”

     Akiolu said he told the acting president that God blessed him more than he expected.

    “He is very quiet, easy going and always with his Bible; see what God has done for him.

    “He was not interested in any political base but God has destined that he will be the number two man.

    “All of us should pray for the two of them and for Nigeria to be very successful, provided we are patient, close to God and absolutely honest in what we are doing.


    It could be recalled that Buhari had written to the national assembly notifying members of his plan to proceed on a 10-day annual leave during which he would undergo routine medical check-ups.

    Buhari was scheduled to resume February 6 but he did not.
    Instead, he again wrote the national assembly, February 5 informing the members of his desire to extend his 10-day vacation in the United Kingdom citing health reasons.


    Since then, reports that the president had died in London have gone viral, despite the efforts of Osinbajo, some ministers and Buhari’s aides to dispel the rumoured death of the president.
