Buhari could return in two weeks, says Okorocha


Rochas Okorocha, Governor of Imo State and Chairman of the All Progressives Congress Governors’ Forum, says President Muhammadu Buhari could return to the country within two weeks.

Okorocha, who was in the APC delegation that met the President  in London on Sunday, told the BBC that Buhari was in high spirits and fully engaged in discussions about happenings back home.

Seventy-four-year-old Buhari left Nigeria 78 days ago to receive medical treatment in London for an undisclosed ailment. He has visited London on medical grounds three times since his assumption of office in May 29, 2015.

Speculations remain high on the President’s true state of health, but few weeks ago, Acting President Yemi Osinbajo visited him, telling Nigerians that Buhari was “recuperating fast” and was expected back home “soonest.”
