President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana has said he and many other world leaders were worried over the health of President Muhammadu Buhari when the latter was away for medical treatment in London.
Akufo-Addo said in an interview he granted State House correspondents on Tuesday after holding a meeting with Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The Ghanaian President said leaders within and outside Africa were anxious about the President’s well-being and prayed for his safe return to Nigeria.
He said he was in Nigeria to felicitate with Buhari on his return and also to engage him on other bilateral issues on the relationship between the two countries.
Akufo-Addo said, “We have been anxious of his well-being and are happy that he is back to the country. I came to see for myself to know how he is. The President is vigorous and very engaging on our affairs.
“We reviewed issues of interest to both countries and those of the Economic Community of West African States. Our big brother in Nigeria is well.”
The Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said the meeting of the two leaders would cement bilateral relations between the two countries.
