The President of federal republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari is back. Reports confirmed that he arrived today to Abuja after a successful medical vacation in London which took him for about 100 days. It was confirmed that the President’s aircraft, Air Force 001, carrying the President landed at the Presidential Wing of the airport at exactly 4.35p.m this evening.

The President’s arrival brought mixed feelings to many Nigerians. Speaking with Ogini Loveth, she believes the president is not still fit to handle the position:
“It’s either he step down from that sit or return back to U.K.”

Contrary to this view, Shittu Zeenat hopes that the president’s presence will move Nigeria forward to the promise land:
“sincerely my only problem now is the strike, I hope he has come to resolve it. But still, I thank God the president is back and we can now hope and look forward to a better Nigeria. And also pray God grants him the strength to continue from where he stopped.”

The president was received by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, some state governors and ministers at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja. Also, some governors were present at the airport, the likes of governors of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje, Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara, Muhammed Abubakar of Bauchi, Abubakar Bello of Niger, Neson Wike of Rivers, Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi and Deputy governor of Kaduna state, Mr Barnabas Bala. Reports also confirmed that the members of the National Assembly, service chiefs, Inspector-General of Police Ibrahim Idris, Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari as well as other presidential aides were also present to welcome the president.

Further more, National Security Adviser to the President (NSA) retired Maj.-Gen. Babagana Monguno; the Director-General, Department of State Security (DSS), Alhaji Lawal Daura and other dignitaries from and within Abuja also arrived at the airport to welcome Buhari. It was also confirmed that the President took a national salute from the Presidential Guards Brigade while cultural groups were also singing and dancing to welcome him back home.

Another patriotic Nigerian Olaosebikan Ganiyu, reacted by saying that the president should fill in the gap that he has left behind for medical trip:

“I am indifference about his arrival, he was indisposed and he is better, he should just make sure that his arrival will fill up the time he has deserted his people.”

The president is expected to make a public broadcast to Nigerians on Monday at 7am. Many Nigerians are excited with the arrival. They all hope that the president has come to work harder than before as the country needs the positive changes he has promised.
