Former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu, has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari will return to the country before June 11.
Kalu said Buhari's health had improved when he visited him in the UK last week and urged Nigerians to stop spreading messages of hate and division about the President's health.
Speaking in an interview with reporters at the Murtala Muhammed Airport, Ikeja, Lagos, he said: "I went to Washington to visit some business partners and from there stopped at London to see Mr President, who is recovering very fast.
"I am excited over the state of health of President Buhari despite the hate messages people were spreading about him. I am disappointed with the statement coming from some Nigerians about the health of Mr President.
"The messages some Nigerians have been spreading in the social media is unhealthy. I am calling on Nigerians to have a change of heart. Being a President, does not mean, you cannot be sick, the hate messages are becoming too much. There must be good sense of tolerance among the ethic groups, we are all one."
Buhari left Nigeria for London May 7 for further medical check-ups.
