He said this today Sunday 23 July, when he received a delegation of APC Governors and leaders in Abuja House, London.

Mr Buhari has been away in London since May 2017 for a medical vacation and has not been seen by his countrymen despite calls from Nigerians for him to address them.

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

Adesina said that Governors Umaru Tanko Al-Makura of Nasarawa; Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna; Yahaya Bello of Kogi; and APC National Chairman, Chief John Oyegun, were the other party chieftains in the delegation.

Governor Okorocha said President Buhari was completely unperturbed by the cocktail of lies.

This visit comes a few days after Acting President Yemi Osinbajo met with the APC governors in Aso Rock.

She said the President urged Nigerians to continue to be strong in the face of challenges and to support the Federal Government in implementing the agenda for which they were elected.

It was gathered that the Guinean President expressed concern for his Nigerian counterpart's health and after the meeting he declared that Friday be devoted to prayers for Buhari's quick recovery. "He will be back to Nigeria as soon as his doctors give the go-ahead", it wrote.

He had, however, declined to go into details about the hour-long conversation with the President.
