Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, on Friday, paid visited President Muhammadu Buhari at Abuja House, London, where he expressed delight over the President’s fast recovery.
This is contained in a statement issued in Abuja on Friday by Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity.
According to Adesina, the Archbishop and President Buhari are friends, who share deep respect for each other.
Welby said he was delighted to see the rapid recovery President Buhari had made from his health challenges, noting that it was “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, Buhari thanked 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.
Welby had personally received Buhari at Lambert Palace, London in 2016 when he attended an international conference on corruption.
Welby also paid a goodwill visit to Buhari in March this year, during his medical vacation.
Buhari has been in London for medical vacation since May 7 and there have been speculations that he could return to the country anytime soon.
