President Muhammadu Buhari has finally returned to Nigeria after a 51-day absence due to health concerns.
Reports said his plane landed on Friday at the Kaduna International Airport and that he was flown by helicopter to the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Presidency sources revealed to the newspaper that Buhari might address the nation Friday after his long absence, in order to quell any concerns over his capacity to govern.
The news of his return Friday was broken last night in a statement by his media aide, Mr. Femi Adesina.
Adesina recalled that the president left the shores of the country on January 19 for a vacation, during which he was scheduled to undergo routine medical check-ups.
He said the scheduled vacation was however extended due to the advice by his doctors that he undergoes further medical tests.
