President Muhammadu Buhari says there is tremendous improvement in his health, indeed, he wishes to return home, “but I’ve learnt to obey my doctor’s orders, rather than be the one issuing the orders. Here, the doctor is absolutely in charge.”

When the team expressed delight at the much improved health of the President, he retorted:

“I feel I could go home, but the doctors are in charge. I’ve now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed.”
