The global head of the Anglican Church and Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has paid a personal visit to President Muhammadu Buhari at Abuja House, London.
This was contained in a press statement issued by the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina.
According to the statement, Archbishop Welby said he was delighted to see the rapid recovery President Buhari has made from his health challenges.
He said the president Buhari’s recovery is a testimony to the healing powers of God, and answer to prayers of millions of people round the world.
The cleric pledged to continue praying for both President Buhari and Nigeria.
In his response, the Nigerian President thanked Archbishop Welby, whom he noted had always stood by him at critical times, and wished him God’s continued grace in his spiritual duty of leading the Anglican Communion worldwide.
The Archbishop and President Buhari are friends, who share deep respect for each other.
The Archbishop later personally received the Nigerian President at Lambeth Palace, London, and had also paid a goodwill visit to President Buhari in March this year, during his medical vacation.
