The statement, emailed to PREMIUM TIMES, quoted Mrs. Buhari as saying her husband was recuperating fast. Mrs. Buhari called on Nigerians to continue to be strong in the face of challenges and to support the Federal Government in implementing the agenda for which they were elected.

“Mr. President thanked the acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo for his loyalty and called on Nigerians to continue to support the acting President in his effort to actualize the mandate of the All Progressives Congress,” she said.

Mrs. Buhari had on May 30 travelled to the UK to spend some time with the President. Before her departure, she thanked Nigerians for their support and prayers for Mr. Buhari’s quick recovery.
