The Chairperson of the African Union (AU), President Alpha Conde of Guinea, Friday, called President Muhammadu Buhari in London to wish him good health and speedy recovery.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, made this known in a statement on Saturday.
He quoted Conde as noting that he was calling on behalf of leaders of member countries of the AU.
Buhari is on an extended vacation in the United Kingdom sequel to medical checkups which showed that he needed to rest further and stay there longer than originally planned.
Adesina said Conde assured President Buhari that all African leaders stood with him in prayers at a time like this.
He said Buhari thanked Conde for the telephone call and used the opportunity to congratulate him on his recent election as AU Chairperson during the 28thOrdinary Summit of the continental body in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in January 2017.
Adesina said President Buhari who could not attend the AU Summit wished his Guinean counterpart a successful tenure.
The presidential spokesman said Buhari also expressed confidence that Africa would witness improved political stability, security and economic growth during Conde’s tenure. (Daily Trust)
