The Federal Government is keeping tabs on the health status of elder statesman, Alex Ekwueme in a London hospital.
The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, has conveyed President Muhammadu Buhari’s goodwill message to the former Vice-President when he visited him at the hospital.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, made this known in a statement in Abuja on Monday.
Shehu stated that the SGF, who was in London before Ekwueme’s arrival, was received by his wife, Helen, on behalf of the Ekwueme family.
Mustapha told the Ekwueme family that the President and Nigerians were praying for speedy recovery of the elder statesman, adding that he believed that the doctors were doing their best.
President Buhari had on November 3 approved immediate medical treatment of the former Vice President outside the country.
