Akande, Tinubu Visits President Buhari in London (Photos)

Former governor of La­gos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the pioneer chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande, on Thursday visited President Muhammadu Buhari in Lon­don.
Buhari is in London on a medical vacation. He was ex­pected back in Nigeria on Monday but he wrote a letter to the National Assembly seek­ing for an extension of his stay to complete some vital medi­cal tests.

There are however specula­tions that the President may re­turn to Nigeria tomorrow.
Akande and Tinubu posed with the President on a photo­graph that was well circulated yesterday.
Also yesterday, the Sen­ate President Bukola Saraki, said that Buhari was hale and hearty in London.
In his twitter handle, Sara­ki said that he spoke with the President on Wednesday night.
He said: “The President is in good spirit, contrary to in­sinuations in some sections of the public that he is in a criti­cal condition.
“Happy to have spoken with President Buhari tonight. He was in good spirit and joked about my working late into the night, as usual.

“He is hale and hearty, go­ing by his voice on the tele­phone which suggested that he is in sound health,’’ Saraki tweetted.
Similarly, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, said in a tweet on Thursday afternoon that President Buhari has some concerns about food security in Nigeria.
He said: “@MBuhari called me yesterday evening. He talked about what the Execu­tive/Legislature must do to en­sure food security for all Nige­rians”.

Dogara said that the Presi­dent is committed to ensuring that the sufferings that Nigeri­ans went through in 2016 over food security would not occur this year.
The Special Adviser on Me­dia and Public Affairs to the Speaker, Mr. Turaki Hassan, confirmed that the two lead­ers spoke.
“As the Rt. Hon. Speaker twitted via his official twitter handle @YakubDogara, Mr. President called him at around 9:20pm Wednesday evening and they spoke for about five minutes. They discussed some national issues, including ways of ensuring food security for Nigerians.”
