President Muhammadu Buhari says he’s currently taking a brief rest while leaving the country for London, UK.
According to a press release on Thursday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President disclosed this during a letter he wrote to the King of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, King Abdullah ll Bin Al-Hussein, following the resolution of a recent rift within the royalty.
The statement was titled, ‘President Buhari writes Jordan’s King Abdullah, conveys good wishes and solidarity’.
Recall that the Presidency had earlier issued a press release that Buhari is going to be undergoing what it called routine medical check-up in London.
In the Thursday’s statement, Shehu quoted Buhari as saying that he felt much disturbed when he heard reports of the matter within the royalty but felt reassured when he learnt that everything had been resolved amicably.
The presidential aide quoted Buhari’s letter thus, “While here in London taking a brief rest, I used to be profoundly disturbed to read from international news agencies of attempts to destabilise the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
“Your exemplary leadership since ascending the throne has attracted worldwide admiration.
“Relations between Nigeria and Jordan are excellent and that I many thanks for the part you’ve got played during this relationship.
‘‘Your Majesty, I’m much heartened that matters have now been resolved and that I pray that the Hashemite Kingdom continues to not only remain peaceful, but also a serious beacon of hope for the region under Your Majesty’s wise guidance.”
