Umahi was one of the seven governors who paid a visit to President Buhari in London on Wednesday, July 26 and The Punch reports that he expressed delight over his recovery.
He said: “We met a cheerful President whose level of recovery is a miracle. We know he will soon return home as soon as his doctors certify him to do so. What he’s treating is not mere malaria that we can say he will return today or tomorrow.
“However, we are happy and we thank God for what we saw. It is contrary to the pictures people are painting on the social media. The President we saw is recuperating well and we are happy for that.
“It is even better that, we as members of the opposition party, are among the entourage. Nigerians should continue to pray for the President.“
On whether the president should be expected back in the country soon, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governor said the acting president was doing a good job and the president should return when his doctors certify him well enough.
