The president claimed in a letter to King Abdullah ll Bin Al-Hussein of Jordan that he is just taking a short break in the United Kingdom.
President Muhammadu Buhari has announced that he is taking a short break before departing for London, United Kingdom.
The President revealed this in a letter he wrote to the King of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, King Abdullah ll Bin Al-Hussein, following the resolution of a recent split in the royal family, according to a statement released on Thursday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.
‘President Buhari writes Jordan’s King Abdullah, conveying good wishes and unity,’ read the statement.
Recall that the Presidency had previously stated that Buhari would be visiting London for a “routine medical check-up.”
Shehu quoted Buhari as saying in the statement on Thursday that he was distressed when he heard news of the royal family feud, but that he felt relieved when he learned that all had been resolved amicably.
The presidential aide quoted Buhari’s letter thus, “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.”
