President Buhari has returned to Nigeria, after 51 days of vacation in London, United Kingdom.

Femi Adesina, the special adviser on media and publicity said President Buhari’s  plane landed in Kaduna  well after 7.am today in Kaduna, debunking earlier reports that the President flew in at about 4.am.

“We are now at the helipad at the Aso Villa  awaiting his arrival from Kaduna. The flight will take about  40 minutes”, said Adesina in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria.

In Kaduna, President Buhari was received  by deputy governor. Barnabas Yusuf Bala, after the President’s plane landed at the VIP Wing of the 401 Flying Training School of the Nigerian Air Force, Kaduna, at about 7.40 a.m.

An excited Kaduna governor, Nasir el-Rufai said on Facebook:

“The President is back. He has landed safely in Kaduna and received by Acting Governor Barnabas Yusuf Bala and senior KDSG officials. The government and people of Kaduna State are proud to receive our First Citizen back to his home to face the task of rebuilding Nigeria. Alhamdulillah. Jumaat Mubarak to everyone”.

Adesina announced yesterday that President Muhammadu Buhari  will return to Nigeria today.

Buhari left Nigeria on 19 January for a vacation in London and was scheduled to return to work on 6 February. During his visit to UK, he also said he would conduct some medical checks.

However,  a day to his resumption, he requested for an extension of his holiday, following the recommendation of his doctors that he wait for further tests and rest.

According to Adesina, President Buhari expressed appreciation to teeming Nigerians from across the country, and beyond, who had prayed fervently for him, and also sent him their good wishes.
