Presidency




President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday remained indoors inside his official residence, 24 hours after he returned to the country from a 49-day medical vacation.

Buhari returned to the country in the early hours of Friday from London, United Kingdom, where he had been on medical sojourn since January 19.

Shortly after meeting some state governors and top government officials led by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo at the First Lady Conference Hall, Buhari retired into his official residence.

Punch reports that the President, who was conspicuously absent at the Jumat service held inside the mosque close to his office later in the day, has not been seen in public since then.

According to the Newspaper, Buhari remained indoors throughout the day at the Presidential Villa, refusing to attend to any visitor or attend any event.

“The President is indoors. He is spending time with his family members. You know he has been away for a long time. There is the need for them to catch up on some issues since he travelled,” a source said.

Recall the President on his return had also said he needed more time for rest and that VP Osinbajo should continue as Acting President.

The Newspaper further confirmed that the Presidential Villa was devoid of heavy vehicular movement that always characterises the visits of prominent politicians and top government officials.

A security source said but for a few family members and close friends, Buhari has not been receiving visitors since he returned on Friday.

The President had shortly after returning to the country urged those who might be considering sending delegations to welcome him to stay back and continue to pray for the country.

His Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, had said the President would on Monday transmit a letter to the National Assembly formally informing the federal lawmakers of his return from vacation.
