President Buhari returns home after 104 days in London, receive by Acting President Osinbajo [PHOTOs]




After 104 days on medical vacation in the United Kingdom, UK, President  Muhammadu Buhari arrived and was received by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, at exactly 4:48 yesterday afternoon, August 19, 2017.

The President’s party, the All Progressives Congress, APC; the Nigeria Governors’ Forum, NGF, as well as leaders of Our Mumu Don Do Movement, which has been agitating for the President to resume or resign, also expressed delight at the President Buhari's return.


The President, who appeared in traditional attires with a cap to match, had preferred to enter into the waiting vehicle adorned with the coat of arms en route, instead of an helicopter to take him to the Presidential Villa.

The President had left the country on May 7, this year, for the second round of his medical treatment in London after receiving 82 rescued Chibok school girls who were abducted by the Boko Haram sect in 2014, handing over power to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who has functioned as Acting President since then.

According to a statement by the Presidential Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, President Buhari is expected to speak to Nigerians in a broadcast by 7 a.m on Monday, August 21, 2017.



He thanks all Nigerians who have prayed ceaselessly for his recovery and well-being since the beginning of the health challenge.
