President Goodluck Jonathan has been asked to “rest for a few days” by “competent medical practitioners” in London, a statement by the presidential media aide, Reuben Abati said.
Jonathan, who was in London to attend the on-going Honorary International Investors’ Council, became indisposed and could not be present at the opening of the meeting today (Thursday).
The statement noted that “President Jonathan has since been examined by competent medical practitioners. He has been advised to rest for a few days”.
It further assured “all Nigerians that President Jonathan’s condition is nothing serious and that the medical attention he has sought is only precautionary”.
President Jonathan had arrived London yesterday for the Honorary International Investors Council (HIIC) Meeting.
The president is accompanied by some members of his cabinet and state governors while global economic figures are also part of the meeting.
The Honorary International Investors Council (HIIC) is an organization of prominent investors from around the world that advises the Nigerian government on matters pertaining to the country’s economic development including reducing political corruption, making the best of oil production and attracting more investments.
The idea is to see Nigeria lose the identity of crime, violence, poverty, political instability and other vices often associated with the country’s image.
