Buhari landed at the Abuja airport at exactly 4.36 p.m.

Several government officials were at the airport to receive him.

The Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, on Saturday expressed gladness at the return of President Muhammadu Buhari from medical vacation in London saying that the President’s recovery was symbolic of the recovery of the country.

Osinbajo, who assumed the position of  Acting President since May 7, upon the President’s trip to London, stated this while addressing state House Correspondents shortly after speaking to Buhari at his residence.

“Nigeria is going to recover. We are on the path to sure economic recovery.

“This is a good sign, it is an excellent sign that our country is on the right path.

“There is great hope, there is great excitement and we are going to make it as a nation and as a people,’’ Osinbajo added.

Reacting to the reception of the President at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, Osinbajo said it was a massive and spontaneous action as many Nigerians heard of the return only a few hours earlier.

“We are very excited and I am extremely happy that the President is back in good health and roaring to go; it is so good to see him.

“Many Nigerians as you could see from the Airport reception were very excited to see the President.

“People had prayed, people had hoped; it is just a natural reaction just seeing him and hearing that he is around.

“As you could see the response was very spontaneous and many people are excited and very happy that he is back,’’ he remarked.

Govs Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano) and Yahaya Bello (Kogi) had described Osinbajo in separate interviews with NAN as an achiever during the time he held sway as Acting President.
