Former National chairman of APC, Chief Bisi Akande has revealed that he wept when he did not see President Buhari at his grandson’s wedding.
Akande also spoke about a personal encounter he had with Buhari in December, recalling the trip he and Bola Tinubu, national leader of the APC, made to London see Buhari.
He said he felt so bad that Buhari could not attend the wedding of his grandson in Kaduna on Saturday.
“I did not see President Buhari at the wedding of his grandson in Kaduna last Saturday. I was sad, and I wept,” Akande said.
“When last we met at the wedding of his daughter in Abuja last December, I complained to him that I was not happy about his stressful looks.
“His reply connoted some allusions to circumstances where an honest man fighting corruption is surrounded mostly by unpatriotic, greedy ruling class. He felt painfully frustrated.
“He assured me he would soon be going on vacation. I then knew that corruption had effectively been fighting back. And I prayed for Nigeria.
“That was why Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and I rushed to meet him in London in February this year when he was sick and could not return as scheduled from his vacation.
“The rest is history, but we must appreciate that his poor health is already taking a toll on the health of Nigeria as a polity.”
He urged all Nigerians to pray for the president’s recovery, saying it was necessary to prevent Nigeria from being thrown into confusion.
“To avoid the ugly consequences of letting President Buhari’s ailments throw Nigeria into confusion, I am urging all Nigerians to begin to pray for his divine healing and perfect recovery,” he said.
