It was the first photograph of the president to be published since May 7.

The Presidency has confirmed the visit of a delegation of All Progressives Congress (APC) Governors and leaders, to see ailing President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja House, London on Sunday.

Nigeria's president has been pictured in London for the first time since he left his homeland nearly 80 days ago.

Guinean President Alpha Condé on Thursday, July 20, urged all Muslims in his country to hold a 24-hour prayers for Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday July 21.

Buhari has spent most of this year in London receiving treatment for an unspecified medical condition.

The governor further asked Nigerians to remain calm and that the President would be back as soon as the doctors give him the green light. Here are 5 reasons Buhari will not be removed from office.

From the opposition end, former minister Femi Fani-Kayode and Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State, prominent leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), have been especially vocal and stringent in their criticism of the president and his handlers over his health and repeated medical vacation.

The delegation were hosted to lunch by the President and included the Party Chairman, John Oyegun; Governors of Imo, Kaduna, Kogi, Nasarawa, and Minister of Transport, Rotimi Amaechi.

This is contrary to claims by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo after his visit with the President, that his boss is recovering quickly.

His health has been a major cause of concern in the country.
