Akwa Ibom Governor, Udom Emmanuel has frowned at the attitude of some Nigerians who always perceive Presidents or Governors as superhuman.
Emmanuel, who was one of the seven governors that visited President Muhammadu Buhari in London on Wednesday, stated this while fielding questions from journalists on the visit.
According to him, Presidents and Governors are mortals like any other human being.
“The issue is that we should thank God that God has answered our prayers, that is where i am coming from.
“And let me also say, some of us behave as if the President and Governors are superhuman.
“We are normal human beings, we also have challenges. So let us not think that because we are Governors or President we are superhuman.
“No, we are not God, we are mere mortals like any of us here.
“So that should also make us play down on the way we look at certain issues,’’ he said.
The governor, who had earlier met behind closed doors with the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, thanked Nigerians for their consistent prayers for the quick recovery of President Buhari.
He said already God had answered their prayers as the President’s health has positively improved.
“So what you are seeing both on TV and newspapers are genuine and correct.
“God has actually healed our President and we thank God for that.’’
