Contrary to the allegations made that the president Muhammadu Buhari is on life support, the All Progressives Congress (APC) says that the president is fast recovering from his illness.
Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, the National Chairman of the party, gave this assurance while speaking to journalists at he end of a meeting between the party`s National Working Committee (NWC) and state governors elected on the party’s platform in Abuja.
“We are glad to inform you that President Muhammadu Buhari is recovering in a very robust manner.
“We hope he takes it easy and when he comes back, I have no doubt at all that we will have a new and active period of activities.’’
However, he stated that only the president’s doctors abroad would decide whenever he was fit to come back to the country.
Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, recently had claimed that President Buhari was on life-support in a London Hospital where he is receiving medical attention.
However, the national chairman did not give response to the Fayose’s comment but said that he would respond to it when the time was appropriate.
“If I respond, I will be dignifying him.
“At the appropriate time, people will answer him; at the appropriate level; at the appropriate time.
“He is in a different world altogether.’’
The party’s leadership has confidence in the President according to him.
He further stated that the meeting analyzed the nation, ongoing agitation for its restructuring and inciting statements emanating from different parts of the country.
Odigie-Oyegun emphasized that such provoking statements are not good “for the nation’s health and have to be stopped’’.
The party still stands on its earlier position on the restructuring of the country as clearly stated in its manifesto, according to him.
He added that the party’s leadership would at all times do what needed to be done to make sure that the unity of the country was preserved.
He said that the APC leadership was prepared to listen to whatever grievances any group in the country might have.
