Buhari likely to return to United Kingdom in 3 weeks

Kaduna - When President Muhammadu Buhari's plane touched ground at the Nigeria Air Force Base Flight Line at Mando, Kaduna, at exactly 7:47 am on Friday, it was obvious that not many were aware of the president's schedule. He claimed that his health had significantly improved during his prolonged treatment in London. Two of the sources said it took intense pressure from his associates before Mr. Buhari agreed to return to Nigeria in defiance of his doctors' opposition.

President Buhari has announced that he is feeling much better and pleased to be back in the country.

The president while speaking with top government officials on Friday, March 10, after his return said he could not recall the last time he had a blood transfusion in his life, Punch reports.

The President was received by the Kaduna State Deputy Governor Bala Bantex, GOC 1 Division, the Commissioner of police and other dignitaries. He later met briefly with some governors and members of his staff to thank them.

Both the President Buhari and Vice President Osinbajo had preferred to use the facility at the NAF Base, even though the Kaduna airport has been open for all global flights to Abuja to land, since Wednesday morning.

In the capital, the head of state, looking gaunt in a billowing black kaftan, stepped off the helicopter and walked across the tarmac to be greeted by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
