The statement said that there was tremendous improvement in his health and "indeed, he wishes to return home, 'but I've learnt to obey my doctor's orders, rather than be the one issuing the orders".

"I am okay" Buhari said, according to a statement by the information ministry on Saturday.

Both times, Buhari appointed his deputy, Yemi Osinbajo, to act in his stead. "Here, the doctor is absolutely in charge", Adesina quoted the President as saying.

Buhari, who spoke 96 days after he commenced the latest round of his medical vacation overseas, yesterday, was quoted as saying: "I have learnt to obey my doctors' orders rather than being the one issuing the orders".

He stated that when Buhari was asked how he felt hearing different conjectures about his health, the president said he followed events at home closely, lauding Nigerian television stations, and the media generally, for keeping him informed. He also said Buhari thanked those praying for him, recalling how his role in the ouster of former Gambian President, Yahaya Jameh, in January brought him a huge goodwill. It gave us a lot of latitudes.

In company of the Lai Mohammed-led team were Mr Femi Adesina, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity; Mallam Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, and Lauretta Onochie, Personal Assistant on Digital/Online Media. "May God reward them", he said in reply to the information that he was being prayed for across the continent.

Photos released by the presidency show Buhari standing outdoors, grinning and wearing sunglasses while holding a large "Get well soon" card, with a handful of officials around him in a leafy, residential area. In another photograph, they were all smiles as the president took a stroll on the forecourt lawn.

If Buhari does not stand, it could also lead to greater ethnic and religious tensions in Nigeria, long riven by divisions between the largely Muslim north and the mostly Christian south.

However, on Thursday, another group of protesters commenced a pro-Buhari protest in the country's capital, dismissing the protest for his resignation as unnecessary.
