The Sec­re­tary to the Gov­ern­ment of the Fed­er­a­tion (SGF), Mr. Boss Mustapha, has vis­ited for­mer Vice-Pres­i­dent, Dr. Alex Ek­wueme in a Lon­don hos­pi­tal to con­vey Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari’s good­will mes­sage to him.

A state­ment by Se­nior Spe­cial As­sis­tant to the Pres­i­dent on Me­dia and Pub­lic­ity, Malam Garba Shehu, said upon an ear­lier ap­proval by Buhari, Ek­wueme was rushed to the hos­pi­tal in an air am­bu­lance in what was de­scribed as a crit­i­cal con­di­tion.

The SGF, ac­cord­ing to Garba, who was in Lon­don be­fore Ek­wueme’s ar­rival, was re­ceived by his wife, Mrs. He­len Ek­wueme on be­half of the Ek­wueme fam­ily.

He said Mustapha told the Ek­wueme’s fam­ily that the pres­i­dent and all Nige­ri­ans were pray­ing for the speedy re­cov­ery of the elder states­man, say­ing he be­lieved that the doc­tors were do­ing their best.
