THE NEWSGHOST, NIGERIA –
After leaving Nigeria to London on January 19, 2017, for a 10-day vacation which was reextended over and over, President Muhammadu Buhari returns to the country today.
President Buhari’s return was confirmed in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity Femi Adesina.
In the statement, Femi Adesina explained that, ‘The president left the country on January 19, 2017 for a vacation, during which he had routine medical checkups. The holiday was extended based on doctors’ recommendation for further tests and rest.’
He also said that, ‘President Buhari expresses appreciation to teeming Nigerians from across the country, and beyond, who had prayed fervently for him, and also sent their good wishes.’
Many Nigerians celebrate Buhari’s return because of how corrupt public officers cringe with fear of Buhari’s war on corruption and the hope that Buhari will fully deliver his campaign promises.
On social media, a delighted Nigerian man in response to the news of Buhari’s return said, ‘It is a good thing that you are returning in order to cause all your subordinates to carry out orders and do the needful like for instance, paying arrears of promotion in the Nigeria Police Force.’ He claims that, ‘The people in charge have already made up their minds to divert that staggering and huge amount of money thereby depriving the beneficiaries of such money their rights.’
