The Governor of Akwa Ibom, Udom Emmanuel Friday, said he was not going to disclose the discussion the governor’s had with Buhari in London.
The governor also said that God has answered the prayers of Nigerians as the President’s health has recorded tremendous improvement, saying that the President appreciated for their prayers.
Governor Udom who met with the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Friday told State House Correspondents that though the governors discussion with President Buhari remained a secret, it was for the overall interest of Nigerians.
He said, “Let me thank God for the life of the president and thank God for Nigerians too. And 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. He discussed 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.”
When asked on what the governors discussed with the President, he said, “I don’t think when you hold meeting even with your wife and children you will come and make that public. The president is father of the nation and we represent the sub unit of this nation and so is not everything that we discussed that we should just come and say. “It was a closed door meeting but be ready assured whatever the president will discuss with the governors will be in the best interest of all the citizens of this country.”
