Recall that Buhari is on an extended vacation in the United Kingdom sequel to medical checkups which showed that he needed to rest further and stay there longer than originally planned.

Adesina said Conde assured President Buhari that all African leaders stood with him in prayers at a time like this.

He said Buhari thanked Conde for the telephone call and used the opportunity to congratulate him on his recent election as AU Chairperson during the 28th Ordinary Summit of the continental body in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in January 2017.
