Buhari: I'll continue to Rest

Fifty-one days after he left the shores of the country on vacation, President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday returned into the waiting hands of Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, ministers and service chiefs, with a charge to Osinbajo to sustain the job he has been doing while he keeps resting.

However, his media aide, Mr. Femi Adesina, swiftly clarified his principal’s comment on his tweeter handle @FemAdesina, that the president’s comment did not imply that he was not yet ready to resume, disclosing that the president would transmit a letter of resumption to the National Assembly on Monday to formally end the period of his vacation.

Buhari, who flew into Kaduna from London as a result of the closure of Abuja Airport at 7.47 am Friday was conveyed to the Presidential Villa by a chopper at about 8.40 am and was received by government functionaries and service chiefs.

He thanked Nigerians who prayed for his sound health irrespective of religious affiliation, describing it as a demonstration of their continued support for the government despite the prevalent economic hardship in the land.
