Acting President, Goodluck Jonathan, has written to the King of Saudi Arabia, Abdulla Bin Abdulaziz, over the state of affairs of ailing President Umaru Yar’Adua.
The letter, Sunday Punch gathered, is to be delivered to the king by the six-man Presidential investigative panel visiting Saudi Arabia to determine the fitness or otherwise of Yar’Adua.
A reliable source told our correspondent that the letter, besides thanking the Saudi Kingdom for his effort in taking care of Yar’Adua, is meant to make the monarch facilitate a parley between the visiting team and Yar‘Adua.
Our correspondent learnt also that the team would depart for Saudi Arabia midnight today.
The source added that the visit was a political one and that Nigerians should not expect any medical report about the president from the team.
However, the outcome of the visit, the source said, would determine the next step the Federal Executive Council would take on Yar’Adua.
The team is to depart with a presidential jet and it was learnt that each of the six man delegation is going with at least two of their aides.
