He said: “When we met the President, he was in high spirit and is eager to return to Nigeria. God has shamed those who wanted him (Buhari) dead. He chatted with us and we told him to take his time and recuperate well until his doctors find him fit to resume work.
“What he needs is our support and prayer. Here in Benue we were the first state to start praying for the President because if the President is sick Nigerians are sick. God has put those who think that President Buhari would die to shame and my prayer for the critics is that God should forgive them.”
