Briefing State House correspondents in Abuja, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Femi Adesina and the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Garba Shehu, said the new delegation that would meet President Buhari on Wednesday afternoon would include governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Elizabeth Donnelly, deputy head of the Africa Program at United Kingdom think tank, Chatham House, said the latest image was likely designed "to calm the speculation" over his protracted absence.
