President Muhammadu Buhari has written to thank the President of Guinea, Alpha Conde, for the nationwide prayers held last week by Guineans for his recovery and good health, his spokesman Femi Adesina said in a statement on Tuesday.

Mr. Buhari, who travelled to London on May 7 for treatment, met with leaders of his party on Sunday as anxiety continues to grow over his ability to return to power.

In the letter to Mr. Conde, the current Chairman of  the Assemblies of Heads of State and Government of the African Union, Mr. Buhari said he was getting stronger everyday.

 “I thank you for your kind and thoughtful action in organizing nationwide prayers for my good health. It is a gesture that I will forever cherish and treasure,” President Buhari said in the letter sent on Monday July 24, according to the Presidency.

 “Your Excellency will be pleased to hear that I am making good progress, and as soon as doctors advise, I shall return to my duties and continue serving the Nigerian people who elected me and are daily praying for my recovery.”

 In an earlier letter, President Buhari had also accepted his nomination as leader of the “2018 AU Theme on the Fight Against Corruption”, which came from African leaders at the 29th Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the AU in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on July 4, 2017.

 “While thanking you for the kind words and for the nomination,” the President wrote to Conde, “I wish to express my readiness to accept this new important role and to reiterate my commitment to contribute towards our collective efforts to strengthen good governance and development on the continent. I, therefore, look forward to working closely with you in the realization of this objective.”
