So, if you have bought Aso-ebi and you are planning to run to Abuja to hold thanksgiving services and a party for a whole week; you better cancel such arrangements.

The President is here to rest and has no plans to eat, drink and make merry at the expense of the nation's economy.

The President is back and he feels much better.

51 days after he left to receive treatment in the United Kingdom, Muhammadu Buhari's arrival at the Military Base in Kaduna state ended speculations on whether or not he is bedridden.

President Buhari, who looked tired and perhaps jetlagged, walked stiffly but unaided to meet top military and government officials who welcomed him. He smiled at them shook hands and walked on.

He boarded a chopper that took him to the state house in Abuja where he was received by the former acting president.

In his first meeting with top aides in 7 weeks, the president thanked Nigerians for their support and prayers. He, however, said he would need more medical attention in a few weeks.

‘‘I am deeply grateful to all Nigerians, Muslims and Christians alike who have prayed and have continued 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,’’ the president said. 

74-year old Buhari adds that he has never been this ill all his life even while he was a young man.

In the meantime, the vice president has been directed to continue running the affairs of government while the president gets more rest.
