The President had got ribs cracking when he said jokingly that, “I have not seen Lai.”

Mohammed, in response, screamed from his seat, “I am here sir!”

On resumption, he had transmitted a letter to the National Assembly, informing the lawmakers of his return.

He also received a briefing from Osinbajo who held the fort for him while he was away.

Although his handlers had claimed he was hale and hearty, Buhari told some state governors and top government officials on his return that he had never been this sick.
