Buhari May Return Before August 7
Don't be surprised if President Muhammadu Buhari comes back to Nigeria before Monday, August 7.
It was after the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, visited President Muhammadu Buhari in March that he returned from his earlier vacation that was extended on health grounds.
Again, the Archbishop has visited President Muhammadu Buhari at a time that Nigerians are betting on when he will return.
Archbishop Welby visited President Buhari on Friday at Abuja House, London, where he expressed delight over the president’s rapid recovery.
The visit was announced on Friday by a spokesman for the President.
According to Adesina, the Archbishop and President Buhari are friends, who share deep respect for each other.
Archbishop Welby said he was delighted to see the rapid recovery President Buhari had made from his health challenges, noting that it was “a testimony to the healing powers of God, and answer to prayers of millions of people round the world.’’
The cleric pledged to continue praying for both President Buhari and Nigeria.
In his response, the Nigerian President thanked Archbishop Welby, whom he noted had always stood by him at critical times, and wished him God’s continued grace in his spiritual duty of leading the Anglican Communion worldwide.
The Archbishop had personally received the Nigerian President at Lambert Palace, London in 2016 when he attended an international conference on corruption.
It was a day after that visit on March 9 that President Buhari returned to Nigeria.
The president left Abuja for London on May 7 for follow-up for medical tests.
