Adesina confirmed this development on his twitter handle on Saturday in Abuja.
The presidential spokesman said Buhari acknowledged his (Adesina) efforts“ for holding out against mischief makers”.
“Thanks for holding out against mischief makers’, PMB tells me during a phone call today. Said he would call again soon. Gave him best wishes.’’
NAN reports that Adesina is the latest person the President spoke to from his London abode in the last few days.
The President had similar phone conversations with governors of Kano and Katsina states, Abdullahi Ganduje and Aminu Masari respectively, this week.
The President, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Samson Ayokunle in a statement, urged Nigerians, especially Christians not to cease praying for the president, acting president and the country “until he (President Buhari) returns in good health and sound mind.’’
President Buhari had earlier in a statement issued by Adesina thanked millions of Nigerians who had been sending good wishes to him.
He revealed that the results of the test conducted on him indicated that he needed a longer period of rest, necessitating his staying longer than originally planned.
