Acting President, Osinbajo, On Stand-By As President Buhari Sets New Date For His Historic Arrival

​President Muhammadu Buhari, will return from the United Kingdom, UK, next week, Daily Trust Newspaper, reports.

The sources who confided in Daily Trust, spoke barely a few hours, after the Presidential Spokesman, Femi Adesina, told Newsmen, that he had no information about when Buhari will return.Recall, that Buhari has been in the UK since May 7, on a medical vacation, over the treatment of an undisclosed illness.
One of the sources said: “We have been told to be on a stand-by for the return of Mr President next week. Everything is in place now for that.”

Another source stated: “We are very very hopeful that Mr President will come back to Nigeria next week. This is the only thing I can tell you for now.”

Post-Nigeria recalled, that Adesina on Tuesday, told State House Correspondents, that the Presidency did not have information on exactly when Buhari would return to Nigeria.

“If anybody is giving a timeline, that person might have information that we don’t have yet. But the information at our disposal, is that the President will return as soon as his Doctors give him the go ahead,” Adesina said.

Also in a statement earlier on Tuesday, Adesina had quoted Buhari to have told the President of Guinea, Alpha Conde, that he would not return to the country now, until his Doctors advised him to do so, even as seven State Governors had traveled to the United Kingdom to meet with him.

Buhari, who has so far spent 79 days in London, receiving treatment for an undisclosed ailments, however, said he was making good progress.

Adesina quoted Buhari as saying this in a letter dated July 24, written to thank the President of Guinea, Alpha Conde, for the nationwide prayers held last week, by Guineans, for his recovery.

“I thank you for your kind and thoughtful action in organising nationwide prayers for my good health. It is a gesture that I will forever cherish and treasure” , Adesina quoted Buhari as saying.

“Your Excellency will be pleased to hear that I am making good progress, and as soon as Doctors advice, I shall return to my duties, and continue serving the Nigerian people, who elected me and are daily praying for my recovery.”
