The leadership of the Na­tional Assembly, who are in London to meet Pres­ident Muhammadu Buhari, have said that Nigerians should go and sleep with their two eyes closed because the President is in sound health.
The Senate President Buko­la Saraki and the Speaker, House of Representatives, Hon. Yaku­bu Dogara, who led the NASS delegation to London, said on Thursday that Buhari is hale and hearty.
Saraki, in a statement he per­sonally signed, allayed the fears of most Nigerians over the state of health of the President, say­ing that Buhari is in good state of health.


The Senate President, who confirmed that he made the visit in company of Dogara, the Sen­ate Leader, Senator Ahmad La­wan, said that they were delight­ed to see “Buhari in a good state of health in the United King­dom.”


He pointed out that the ab­sence of the President notwith­standing, Nigeria’s system of democracy is working with all organs of government fulfilling their mandates.

He said: “The President is doing well, cheerful and in good spirit, encouraging Nigerians that there is no cause for alarm.

“Myself, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara and Leader of Senate, Senator Ahmad Lawan, paid a visit to President Buhari in the Abuja House in London.

“We were delighted to see that President Buhari is doing well, was cheerful and in good spirit.
“The President I saw today is healthy, witty and himself. The President’s absence and im­minent return shows that there is no vacuum in government and our system of democracy is working with all organs of gov­ernment fulfilling their man­date. And let me use the time-tested cliché, there is no cause for alarm!”
Similarly, Dogara said that “Buhari is as fit as a fiddle.”

Dogara, in a statement is­sued by his Special Adviser on Media and Public Affair, Tura­ki Adamu Hassan, said that they discussed national issues with the President.

The statement reads: “In a tweet via his verified official twitter handle @YakubDogara on Thursday, the Speaker said they discussed national issues with the President.

“He further said that Presi­dent Buhari is as fit as a fiddle and cracked jokes in his usual manner.
“The President is as fit as a fiddle. After burning national is­sues, it was all PMB’s vintage hu­morous jokes. I’m so elated he is as fit as a fiddle.”

“The leadership of the Na­tional Assembly’s visit to the President is sequel to an agree­ment reached between the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Repre­sentatives,” he said.
