What Anglican Archbishop Said About Buhari’s Health.
Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, on Friday, paid a personal visit to Nigeria’s ailing President, Muhammadu Buhari in London where he has been receiving medical treatment since May 7. What He Does After leaving the Abuja House will Shock You!
As revealed by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, Mr Welby was at the President’s london residence on Friday, August 4th, 2017.
Adesina said the Archbishop had described President Buhari as his friend, at Abuja House, London.
The presidential spokesman quoted Welby as saying during the visit that he was delighted to see the rapid recovery Buhari has made from his health challenges. He also described the President’s recovery as a testimony to the healing powers of God, and answer to prayers of millions of people around the world.
The Anglican Cleric Said (As Quoted from Adesina):
“The cleric pledged to continue praying for both President Buhari and Nigeria.”
“In his response, the Nigerian President thanked Archbishop Welby, whom he noted had always stood by him at critical times and wished him God’s continued grace in his spiritual duty of leading the Anglican Communion worldwide.”
It will be recalled that when former British Prime Minister, David Cameron, described Nigeria as a “fantastically corrupt” country ahead of an anti-corruption summit in London in 2016, Welby had retorted, “But this particular President (Buhari) is actually not corrupt.”
The Archbishop later personally received the Nigerian President at Lambert Palace, London, and had also paid a goodwill visit to Buhari in March, during his medical vacation.
