President Muhammadu Buhari is expected back in the capital, Abuja today, Sunday.
He was initially due to arrive on Wednesday.
Vice President Osinbajo had earlier said “I spoke with him yesterday evening and I think it is just the best that he takes the weekend off. He will certainly be back on Sunday.
I think the most straightforward thing is when he will be back. He will be back on Sunday. There is no point rushing back on Friday or something like that.
He will just take the weekend off and be back on Sunday. He is in perfect health and ready to resume work on Monday morning.
Mr. President is in good condition, he is fine, he is very well. He should take a day or two off in London and rest a bit and come back hale and hearty on Sunday and be ready for work on Monday. So we expect him back on Sunday,”
President Buhari had travelled to London on Monday June 6th, during which he was expected to “see an E.N.T. specialist for a persistent ear infection.”
The President also received visitors during his stay.
