Barely 24 hours after Senate President Bukola Saraki and House of Representatives Speaker Yakubu Dogara visited recuperating President Muhammadu Buhari in London, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God Worldwide, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, on Friday visited the president at Abuja House in London.
Adeboye, popularly called ‘Daddy G.O’ is probably the first Nigerian clergy to visit the President since he left Nigeria for London on May 7 to seek medical treatment for an undisclosed ailment. But internationally-renowned cleric, Archbishop of Cantebury had earlier visited Buhari.
President Buhari looked relaxed when he met Pastor Adeboye as shown by the photograph released by the Presidential Villa.
Buhari has spent more than 100 days in London on medical vacation. But he properly transferred power to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo before he left the country.
The leadership of the All Progressive Congress (APC), a delegation of Governors, his media aides and the leadership of the National Assembly had taken their turns to visit Buhari.
In his absence, some protesters led by eccentric musician Charly Boy had protested in Abuja, asking the president to either resign or resume work. A counter protest, by groups loyal to the president, had also been seen in the capital city.
