Osinbajo visits Buhari in London

Prof Yemi Osinbajo Nigeria’s Acting President travelled to London on Tuesday to visit ailing President Muhammadu Buhari who left the country almost two months ago on a medical vacation.

The Acting Presidents visit to London was contained in a series of tweets Tuesday evening by his media adviser, Mr. Laolu Akande who said that Osinbajo held a meeting with President Buhari and was already on his way back to Nigeria.

Indications that President Buhari has recovered were dropped in a cryptic Facebook post by his wife, Aisha.  She said hyenas and jackals will soon be flushed out of ‘the kingdom’, with the return of the Lion King, a reference to President Buhari.

Aisha Buhari’s post was predicated on that of Senator Shehu Sani. Observers believed the post was a clear indication that God had answered Nigerians’ prayers for the quick recovery of Buhari.

Aisha who is currently in London to nurse her husband said: “God has answered the prayers of a weaker animal; the Hyenas and Jackals would soon be sent out of the kingdom.’’

“We strongly believe in the prayers and support of the weaker animals.

“Long live the weaker animals, long live Nigeria,’’ she posted.

Her post was a direct response to that of Senator Shehu Sani (APC Kaduna Central).

The senator said that while “weaker animals” were praying for the return of “Lion King,” those he called “the hyenas” and “the jackals” were scheming based on the assumption that the “Lion King” would never return.

“Prayer for the absent Lion King has warned. Until he’s back, then they will fall over each other to be on the front row of the palace temple.

“Now, the hyenas and the jackals are scheming and talking to each other in whispers; still doubting whether the Lion King will be back or not.

“Now, the Lion King is asleep and no other dares to confirm if he will wake up or not.

“It is the wish of the hyenas that the Lion King never wakes up or come back so that they can be kings.

“It is the prayers of the weaker animals that the Lion King comes back to save the kingdom from the hyenas, the wolves, and other predators.”
