Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari is eager to return home after his medications in London.
He described the great improvement in the health of the president as indication that God is answering the prayers of millions of Nigerians.

“God has answered our prayers. It is one thing to pray and it is another for God to answer; so let us continue to pray. Our God is God of the beginning and the end. As He is healing Mr President, it is our duty to pray so that God will consummate the healing so that our President can come back.
“He is eager to return and is very grateful to Nigerians for praying for him and he wishes us well”, the Governor stated.
