  1. Adeola, your headline is misleading. This report explains why he needed a longer period of rest. However, your headline suggests that he is seeking a longer period of rest.

  2. Mr. President, I join many well wishers praying for you to get well soon. May Almighty Allah heal you. Stay there until Doctors certify you ready to go home and resume work. You health is more important than Nigeria. In order words, you have to be healthy to serve Nigeria. Wishing you speedy recovery.

  3. Come home to Nigeria and rest.
