BREAKING: Buhari Returns To Nigeria Today After 103 Days


President Muhammadu Buhari returns to the country later today, after receiving medical attention in London for 103 days.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina had said in a statement, which tallied with several tweets at the President’s Twitter handle @Mbuhari.

“The President had left the country on May 7, this year, after handing over power to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who has functioned as Acting President since then.

“President Buhari is expected to speak to Nigerians in a broadcast by 7 a.m on Monday, August 21, 2017.

“He thanks all Nigerians who have prayed ceaselessly for his recovery and well-being since the beginning of the health challenge,” Adesina said.

This is coming after Nigerians took to the street in London last night (Friday) demanding President Muhammadu Buhari to either resume or resign.

Recall, the #ResumeOrResign sit-out protest in Abuja, Nigeria was called off by organizers, after an angry mob attacked the protesters including co-coveners: Charles Oputa a.k.a Charley boy and Deji Adeyanju,

As seen in the video, The New Diplomat gathered the protesting Nigerians defied the cold to keep a vigil at 2, Abuja house in London where the president has been staying for the past 103 days since he departed the country on May 7, 2017.
