President Muhammadu Buhari has asked Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo to remain in that position while he continues his rest, a report by TheCable has said.

The President made this known during a meeting with top government officials at the First Lady Conference room of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

“I am pleased I am back, I am feeling much better now” – President Buhari said, thanking Nigerians for their prayers and asked for more prayers.

“I deliberately came back towards the weekend so that the vice-president will continue and I will continue to rest. Thank you very much,” he added.

Those at the meeting included Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari; his media aide, Femi Adesina, National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno, and D-G of the Department of State Services (DSS), Lawal Daura.

Governors Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano), Abdulaziz Yari (Zamfara), and Yahaya Bello (Kogi) were also in attendance.

Buhari arrived in Nigeria on Friday.

The presidential plane that brought him from London earlier landed at the Nigeria Air Force base Kaduna at about 7.47AM.

Buhari left the country on January 17 on a 10-day vacation which he said he would also use to have a medical check-up.

The leave was later extended, based on a medical advice by his doctors,who said they needed to carry out further tests on him.

    No more drama biko, The country needs to breathe from all the shenanigans of the past weeks. Mr President, PLEASE, for the love of self/family/friends and especially for the love of nation- if you have such- quietly head to Daura and stay there till your maker finally calls you home. Thank you.

    He looks so frail but I guess like all African Presidents, he can never relinquish power, would rather die on the chair.

    See him looking so weak and unwell , after spending over 2 months abroad you would still come back to rest.To rest from what exactly? I suppose Lie Mohammed had said you only went to rest as you were not sick. I have been trying to fathom of any other country that would take the shits that Nigerians have been taking from this man and APC.What happened to impeachment if he has refused to honourably resign at the expense of a country as big as Nigeria.Even if he resists,Competent Nigerians are supposed to stand up and do what is best to move Nigeria forward.Buhari is obviously psychologically,medically,physically etc incapable of rulling Nigeria. Buhari is the president illogically whilst Osinachi is the president logically for how long,Why is Nigeria hopelessly waiting for Buhari to do the needful for the sake of the entire country? Are Nigerians and Nigeria that helpless?So very sad!!

    Welcome back home President Buhari. How much exactly did your self exile in London cost Nigeria? This is a legitimate question Nigerians want you to answer personally. Secondly, You have behaved like a prodigal Son of Nigeria. You have wasted Nigeria’s meager resources to buttress the British economy at a time when your administration is busy at home urging their fellow Citizens to buy made in Nigeria goods and services. You and your administration has no moral ground to stand on when it comes to preaching buy made in Nigeria products and services. All the Money you alone spent in London if used in Nigeria would have help to improve Nigeria medical needs. Teacher don’t teach me nonesence. A word is enough for the wise. I’m just saying.

    To be honest, Nigerians are highly insensitive. This is your president that you voted for. He’s human and can fall sick. Before he left for country, he handed over to the VP. with full powers. So what’s the noise about. It’s not the same case as Yardua. In Cuba, Fidel Castro was sick for more than a year before he relinquished power to his son. As a matter of fact, he’s one of the best leaders we have had, if not the best. Look at the way Americans love Obama. We should pray for our president and wish him well, instead of coming here to castigate him.

      You are absolutely stupid and I say that in the nicest way possible.
      Majority of the population earn less than $1 a day and you have the audacity to compare us to Americans.
      Our government is incompetent and full of selfish and greedy thieves. This man actually left HIS country and went to the UK for medical treatment. President of the same country people die like flies due to inadequate availability of healthcare.
      Obama that you’re mentioning was literally responsible for Obamacare yet you think they can be compared? Please. That was a president passionate about his country and people.
      The reasonable thing for this man to do is RESIGN!! How can you be content with him putting the VP in charge ffs. This is a COUNTRY not primary school…Nigerians please wake up and stop making excuses for this tired government.

      Also, you cannot force people to be compassionate because no one asked him to run for president at his age. He acted like it was a do or die affair and now he is literally about to die on the line. All for what? And we have every right to be angry because whose money was he using to pay his bills?! Don’t even get me started on his disorganised team. No accountability or transparency whatsoever. Every single day, we were kept in the dark wondering whether or not he was even alive. Typing this has brought me close to tears because we I am so fed up of complaining about the same thing my parents complained about.. I deserve better and so do you!!’ Hold your president accountable & speak up!

      Did you say Fidel Castro? Boo boo, wrong choice of example. He was a dictator who made sure that powered stayed in his family and Obama is way younger than Sai Baba. Please choose another example.
