The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha pays Dr. Alex Ekwueme a visit in his London hospital.
Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, disclosed this in a statement in Abuja on Monday.
Shehu said that the SGF, who was in London before Dr Ekwueme’s arrival, was received by his wife, Mrs Helen Ekwueme, on behalf of the Ekwueme family.
Mustapha told the Ekwueme family that the President and Nigerians were praying for his speedy recovery, adding that he believed that the doctors were doing their best.
President Buhari had approved immediate medical treatment of the former vice president outside the country, following a brief he received over his health condition.
Ekwueme, who had collapsed in his Enugu residence few weeks ago, was flown abroad on Sunday, upon approval of his treatment by the president.
Ekwueme had been receiving treatment at the Intensive Care Unit of Memphys Hospital of Neurosurgery, Enugu, where doctors diagnosed him of chest infection.
