The governor of Akwa Ibom State, Udom Emmanuel, on Friday revealed reasons why they say everything they discussed with President Muhammadu Buhari in London.

Emmanuel, elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, was among the seven governors that met Buhari in the United Kingdom on Wednesday.


President Buhari has been in the UK since May 7 for consultation with his doctors.

Emmanuel, while addressing State House reporters on Friday after meeting behind closed-doors with Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, thanked God for answering Nigerians’ prayers on Buhari’s health.

“Let me thank God for the life of the president and for Nigerians too. I also appreciate Nigerians who have prayed sincerely and earnestly for Mr. President and I think God has actual answered the prayers of Nigerians. From what you could see from the photographs, you could see that God has actually answered our prayers.

“So, some of us were quite excited to see Mr. President welcome us, discuss with us and he was also happy to see us. So, what you are seeing both on TV and newspapers are genuine and correct. God has actually healed our president and we thank God for that,” he said.

The governor said what Buhari discussed with the delegation of the Nigerian Governors Forum in London was not for public consumption.

“I don’t think when you hold meeting even with your wife and children, you will come and make that public. The president is the father of the nation and we represent the sub-units of this nation. So, it is not everything that we discuss that we should just come and say. It was a closed-door meeting, but be ready assured that whatever the president will discuss with the governors will be in the best interest of all the citizens of this country,” he said.

Emmanuel noted that only Buhari’s doctors would certified him okay, saying “I’m sorry, I’m not the doctor I’m just a governor. Let me say something here, even when you have a biological father, you love your father, you take interest in his well being. I mean as a father to the nation, in my personal opinion, I don’t think that is the issue now.

“The issue is that we should thank God that God has answered our prayers, that is where I am coming from. And let me also say, some of us behave as if the president, the governors are super-humans, we are normal human beings, we also have challenges. So, let us not think that because we are governors or president, we are super-humans. No, we are not God, we are mere mortals like any of us here. So, that should also make us play down on the way we look at certain issues.”
