May God reward those praying for me - Buhari says in London

He had left Nigeria for the United Kingdom (UK) for medical treatment on May 7.
In a statement by his Femi Adesina, Buhari confirmed that his health had tremendously improved and wished to return to Nigeria.
That has sparked numerous protests, including demands that Buhari should resign, as well as calls for more transparency about the president's condition.
President Muhammdu Buhari, on Saturday, said falling ill has taught him "to obey orders, rather than be obeyed'".
Last month, his aides released a photo of Buhari having lunch in London with senior member of his ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC), amid intense speculation in Nigeria about the President's health. Also there was Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Matters. Here, the doctor is absolutely in charge.

Investors include the government funds of Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi, as well as Apple Inc. and other tech companies. The Straits Times Index sank 1.31 per cent or 43.52 points to 3,279.72, down 1.4 per cent for the week.
The president said this when he received a delegation from his government led by Lai Mohammed, the information and culture minister.
President Muhammadu Buhari has said he feels ready to return home from medical leave in Britain, and is awaiting his doctor's permission, a presidency statement said on Saturday. "I've now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed", he is quoted as saying.
When told that prayers were going on fervently for him, not only in Nigeria, but all over Africa, and around the world, a delighted President said: "What we did in The Gambia early this year fetched us a lot of goodwill on the African continent". It gave us a lot of latitude.
"If President Buhari can not return to Nigeria after 90 days, then he should resign and go home", one protester said at a sit-in on Monday. "May God reward them".
