…says President recuperating fast
Wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha , Tuesday morning, returned to the country.
The President’s wife returned alone without her husband whom she said is recuperating fast in London, the United Kingdom (UK).
Mrs. Buhari travelled to London on May 30 and promised to stay with her husband for some time.
A statement by her media team had said then that: “Her Excellency will spend some time with her husband, President Muhammadu Buhari who is presently on medical vacation.”
Mrs. Buhari, on arrival Tuesday, conveyed the appreciation of the President to Nigerians over their constant prayers and said he will soon be with them as he is “recuperating fast”.
She called on Nigerians to continue to be strong in the face of challenges and to support the Federal Government in implementing the agenda for which they were elected.
In a statement by her Director of Information, Suleiman Haruna, she is quoted as saying: “Mr. President thanked the acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo for his loyalty and called on Nigerians to continue to support the acting President in his effort to actualize the mandate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).”
President Buhari had on May 7, 2017 left the country midnight after receiving 82 Chibok girls released by the Boko Haram sect.
The President, who transmitted power to his Vice, Professor Yemi Osinbajo in compliance with section 145 (1) of the 1999 constitution (as amended), wrote to both leaderships of the National Assembly before departing.
Mrs. Buhari’s trip to the President is coming three weeks after her husband left the country for a follow-up medical check-up.
