"It (calls for president's resignation) is an act which is maliciously and mischievously being promoted by some unpatriotic and unguided people who do not even appreciate the collective responsibility of preserving the integrity of the Nigerian state as a project and are sadly patronized by the Nigerian media", he said.

"We mean well for our president. It's very good. [Going] by the press you're working very hard".

He described the non-elective convention of the party held on Saturday as an affirmation that the PDP was a government in waiting.

President Buhari left the shores of the country since May 7th to London on Medical Vacation.

President Muhammdu Buhari, on Saturday, said falling ill has taught him "to obey orders, rather than be obeyed'". Meanwhile, Goodluck Obi, the convener of the protest, who spoke on behalf of the demonstrators, said: "The group has absolute faith and trust in President Buhari's administration and not machination of corruption and destabilisation".

Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, led the visiting team, including Mr Femi Adesina, special adviser on media and publicity; Mallam Garba Shehu, senior special assistant on media and publicity and Lauretta Onochie, personal assistant on digital/online media.

"I feel I could go home, but the doctors are in charge", he said, adding that there has been a "tremendous improvement" in his health. "I have now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed". It gave us a lot of latitudes.

Accompanied by photographs of Buhari and his media team exchanging banters in London, the statement also quoted Buhari as thanking his country folks and other Africans for praying for his recovery. "May God reward them".

President Muhammadu Buhari has sent his greetings to Nigerians informing them that he would soon be home from London.
