Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, has paid a visit to former Vice President of Nigeria, Dr Alex Ekwueme, who is currently undergoing treatment in a London hospital.
The visit was at the behest of President Muhammadu Buhari through which he conveyed a goodwill message to former Vice President.
Upon approval by President Buhari, Dr Ekwueme was rushed to the hospital in an air ambulance in what was described as a critical condition.
In a brief statement by Presidential Spokesman, Garba Shehu, 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 all Nigerians are praying for the speedy recovery of the elder statesman, adding that he believed that the doctors were doing their best.
