The British High Commissioner to Nigeria, Paul Arkwright, has said President Muhammadu Buhari has not only fully recovered from his illness but he is fit to carry on the responsibilities of his office.
Arkwright, who said this while speaking with Vanguard in Abuja, maintained that the Presidency was not lying to Nigerians about the true health status and fitness of the President.
Arkwright said, “I had a privilege to meet President Buhari in the Villa. I was one of the small numbers of Ambassadors who were invited to witness the signing of treaties and MoUs between Nigeria and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
“What I can say is what I saw. I saw a President who was fit; he was fine; he was cheerful; he had a great sense of humour. It was great to see him.
“President Buhari greeted me very warmly and I shook his hand. Frankly, it was just brilliant and great to see him back to work in full capacity.”
Buhari, who had spent 101 days in London treating an undisclosed illness has since returned to the country.
