The Presidency has explained why there is a sudden influx of Governors and other politicians to London to visit the ailing President Muhammadu Buhari.

On why the Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, who has been vocal on the issue, was not part of the delegation, Adesina replied: "The selection was by the governors' forum and you will see that the delegation is headed by governor Yari who is chairman of that forum".

The Governors are; Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara State, David Umahi of Ebonyi State, Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State, Udom Emmanuel of Akwa Ibom State, Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State, Samuel Ortom of Benue State, and Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima.

You will recall that President Muhammadu Buhari left the country since May 7 and has remained in London, United Kingdom, attending to an undisclosed ailment at the expense of taxpayers' money.

However, pictures released on Twitter by the president's office appear to show Buhari meeting a delegation of governors from his APC political party in London. "So that question should go to the forum".

This visit comes two days after a delegation of leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) held a meeting with the president in London.

Rochas reported that the President Buhari was cheerful and humorous during their visit and delighted to receive the delegation. "If the president opts for address option he will do it". When somebody has recovered or something has happened, it's in our culture to visit such a person.

"While thanking you for the kind words and for the nomination", the President wrote to Conde, "I wish to express my readiness to accept this new important role and to reiterate my commitment to contribute towards our collective efforts to strengthen good governance and development on the continent".

The spokesman noted that if anybody had put a date on Buhari's return, the person could have information that is not available to the media team.

Adesina said the two ministers who have been confirmed by the senate would soon be sworn in. "He will be back to Nigeria as soon as his doctors give the go-ahead", the text of one of Sunday's tweets said.
