John Oyegun, Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), on Sunday led select officials of the party and some APC governors to a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in London.

The meeting was confirmed by the official twitter handle of the presidency, and by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity.

Present at the meeting were Rotimi Amaechi, Minister of Transportation; Rochas Okorocha, Governor of Imo State; and Governors Umaru Tanko Al-Makura (Nasarawa), Nasir El-Rufai (Kaduna) and Yahaya Bello (Kogi).

Releasing statement on the meeting, Adesina said: “In a telephone conversation following the meeting of All Progressives Congress (APC) governors and leaders with President Muhammadu Buhari in London Sunday, Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, said the President was very cheerful and has not lost any bit of his sense of humour.

“The governor said the party delegation spent more than an hour with President Buhari over lunch, and it was very clear from the discussions that he followed developments at home very closely.

    “When asked to react to all the negative things being said about him, the President just laughed, describing such negative reports as lies. Governor Okorocha said President Buhari was completely unperturbed by the cocktail of lies. He, instead, sent his best wishes to Nigerians.

    “According to the governor, Nigerians don’t have to worry at all, adding that President Buhari will be back as soon as the doctors give him the green light.

    “By our visit to London today, the merchants of lies have been put out of business and Nigerians will not buy the garbage they have been selling. All those who look up to fake news can find better use for their time.”

    Buhari has been in the UK on medical vacation since May 7.
