The President, Maj. Gen Muhammadu Buhari (retd) has sent his prayers and good wishes to the British Prime Minister, Mr. Boris Johnson, wishing him quick recovery.
The prime minister was last month diagnosed with the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), and reports on Monday claimed that he had been placed on life- support machine as he battled the disease.
President Buhari, in a statement Tuesday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, prayed that Johnson would soon claim victory over the disease and resume work to lead the British to overcome the pandemic.
“On behalf of the government and people of Nigeria, President Buhari wishes Prime Minister Johnson a quick recovery and restoration to full health.
”President Buhari’s sympathy and solidarity are with the British leader as he battles COVID-19, and with the British as their country battles the devastating effects of the pandemic.
“President Buhari prays that Prime Minister Johnson will soon be well enough to resume his great leadership of his country at this most trying time in global history,” the statement said.
