President Muhammadu Buhari has said he is taking a short rest in London, United Kingdom.
According to a statement issued on Thursday by the presidential media aide, Garba Shehu, the president disclosed this in a letter of solidarity to King Al-Hussein, King of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, following the resolution of a recent rift in the royal family.
TheFact Nigeria reports that the president left the country on March 31 for his routine medical checkup and he is expected to return to Nigeria next week.
Buhari said he felt much disturbed when he heard reports of the problem but felt reassured when he learnt that everything had been resolved amicably.
The letter in parts reads, “While here in London taking a short rest, I was profoundly disturbed to read from international news agencies of attempts to destabilise the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
“Your exemplary leadership since ascending the throne has attracted worldwide admiration. Relations between Nigeria and Jordan have been excellent and I thank you for the part you have played in this relationship.
‘‘Your Majesty, I am much heartened that matters have now been resolved and I pray that the Hashemite Kingdom continues to not only remain peaceful, but also a major beacon of hope for the region under Your Majesty’s wise guidance.”
