President Buhari Will Resume Immediately – Adesina
In case there are still doubts, President Buhari appears to have truly fully recovered and is set to return to work.
His spokesperson, Mr Femi Adesina, made this known on Monday.
"Later this morning a letter will be transmitted and that letter is what signifies his coming back into office. It will be done today.”
Wondering how that works when the National Assembly is on recess? Mr Adesina explained that they don’t have to read it.
The constitution only requires the letter is transmitted and he takes over power as the President.
“They don’t have to read it or debate it. What the Constitution requires is for him to send it. Once it is sent he assumes office.”
There would be fears that the President might break down again if he does not take things slow. Governor El Rufai is among those who have openly asked him to reduce work time.
But Adesina asked Nigerians to hope and pray that the President remains hale and hearty.
“What Nigerians should hope for is that our president will remain whole. But if there is any reason to go out why not, you need to first stay alive before you can lead a country.
“So, whatever it takes for our president to remain healthy should be done but we want to hope and believe that the worst is over.”
It was a wild jubilation at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International airport in Abuja on Saturday when the President arrived Nigeria after spending 104 days in UK receiving medical care.
A mammoth crowd trooped out to welcome him back home with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo among the top shots on hand to welcome their boss.
