President Buhari Returns Friday
President Muhammadu Buhari is expected back in Nigeria tomorrow, Friday, after nearly 50 days in London where he went on medical vacation.
This was disclosed by Femi Adesina, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, in a short statement on Thursday night.
The statement read: “President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to return to the country tomorrow, Friday March 10, 2017.
“The President left the country on January 19, 2017 for a vacation, during which he had routine medical check-ups. The holiday was extended based on doctors’ recommendation for further tests and rest.
“President Buhari expresses appreciation to teeming Nigerians from across the country, and beyond, who had prayed fervently for him, and also sent their good wishes.”
Earlier on Thursday, the President posted on the social media pictures of the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, when the latter visited him at the Abuja House in London.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo had been acting on behalf of the President throughout the nearly 50 days he spent in London.
