The jubilation that heralded Baba's return from London after 103 days is still ongoing.

The people of Kogi State seems to have missed the President so much that the state government declared Monday a public holiday.

The Director-General, media and publicity to the state governor, Kingsley Fanwo, said it is to enable the people give thanks to God.

He said that decision was also in line with the support the people of the state had been giving to Buhari in his efforts at correcting the ills of past administrations.

“We urge Kogites to also use the occasion of the public holiday to pray for Mr. President as he resumes his responsibilities of repositioning Nigeria,” the statement said.

The statement quoted the state governor, Yahaya Bello, as thanking the people for standing by the President while undergoing treatment in London and for trooping to Abuja to welcome the him.
