The President, who addressed the nation on Friday shortly after his arrival from London, said there “may be need to have further follow-ups within some weeks. He, however, said that he was feeling much better now.

Buhari thanked all Nigerians for their prayers for his quick recovery.

“I am deeply grateful to all Nigerians – Muslims and Christians alike, who have prayed and are continuing to pray for my good health.

“This is a testimony that in spite of the hardship being experienced, Nigerians support the Government in its effort to tackle our country’s challenges.

He said that the best way to repay Nigerians is to re-dedicate myself to serving you, protecting your interests and keeping your trust. I thank you very much.’’

“Rather than sending delegation upon delegation to Abuja to welcome me, may I appeal to all Nigerians to continue to pray for our country’s unity, progress and prosperity.’’

“I thank you very much and may God bless our Country,’’ Buhari said.

President Buhari arrived at the Presidential Villa, Abuja early on Friday.
