President Muhammadu Buhari arrived the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja around 5:30pm on Sunday, after spending 13 days in the United Kingdom on medicare and vacation. On arrival, the President reportedly challenged journalists to a wrestling bout, saying that he is strong to resume work.
He said “You have seen me, you saw me when I was going, you can do the assessment by yourself,” adding that, “you can see me inspecting the guards of honour, if you want to wrestle me, you can do so, but you know I’m taller than you.”
According to agency reports, Buhari was received by members of the Federal Executive Council, Service Chiefs, and some governors.
The president, who was clad in a light brown kaftan with a cap to match, did not use the helicopter meant to transport him to the presidential villa, but rather embarked on road journey.
Buhari left the country on June 6, for a 10-day vacation, during which he was expected to see his doctors for an ear infection.
He was due to be back on Thursday but Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo said the president decided to extend his trip by four days.
“The president will be back on Sunday. I spoke with him yesterday evening and I think it is just the best that he takes the weekend off. He will certainly be back on Sunday,” Osinbajo had told state house correspondents.
While on vacation in London, the president hosted dignitaries such as: Atiku Abubakar, including former vice-president; Bola Tinubu, former governor of Lagos state; and Sikiru Adetona 11, awujale of Ijebuland.
Others were Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, and Idowu Fearon, archbishop and secretary-general of Anglican Communion.
