Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday evening returned to Abuja from the United Kingdom (UK), exactly 16 days after he left for a routine medical check-up.
Recall that Buhari left Nigeria on Tuesday, March 30 briefly after a security meeting with defense and intelligence chiefs, as well as other security sector managers where he charged them to deal with terrorists and bandits ruthlessly.
According to presidency sources, President’s aircraft touched on ground at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja around 4:45 pm.
He is expected to resume official duties on Friday.
Those at the airport to welcome the president included the Chief of Staff to the President, Prof. Ibrahim Gambar; Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Muhammed Bello, and the National Security Adviser to the President, retired Maj.-Gen. Babagana Monguno.
The President, after a brief welcoming ceremony at the airport, boarded a presidential helicopter that conveyed him to the Presidential Villa.
