President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday returned to Nigeria after spending 14 days in London.
Buhari landed at the presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport at about 5:30PM.
He was received by Zamfara State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari; Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello; members of the Federal Executive Council, top government officials, federal lawmakers, and service chiefs amongst others.
According to Channels Television, Buhari, speaking to reporters at the airport said:
“I am Okay. I am better. You can see me inspecting the guards of honour. Now you can do the assessment yourself.”
Buharis’s Special Adviser (Media and Publicity), Femi Adesina had announced that the president was going to “rest” and “see an E.N.T specialist” for further evaluation of a persistent ear infection, after he was examined by his personal physician and treated by an E.N.T specialist in Abuja.
According to a tweet by Bashir Ahmaad, the president’s Personal Assistant on New Media, Buhari said:
President Buhari – Fellow Nigerians, thank you for your prayers and your support.

The president departed Abuja for London on Monday, June 6th for a 10-day vacation in London. Vice President Yemi Osinbajo last Thursday announced the extension of Buhari’s return. “He will be back on Sunday,” he said.
