Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has assured on the health of PresidentÂ Muhammadu Buhari.
This is coming just as he stated that the President will return toÂ NigeriaÂ on SundayÂ and notÂ on ThursdayÂ as earlier announced.Addressing State House correspondents before the meeting of theÂ National Economic Council (NEC)Â on Thursday, Osinbajo said that it isÂ best for the President to take the weekend off.
According to him, the President is in perfect health condition andÂ will be ready to resume officeÂ on MondayÂ morning.
He said: “The President will be backÂ on Sunday. I spoke with himÂ yesterday evening and I think it is just the best that he takes theÂ weekend off. He will certainly be backÂ on Sunday.
“I think the most straightforward thing is when he will be back. HeÂ will be backÂ on Sunday. There is no point rushing backÂ on FridayÂ orÂ something like that.
“He will just take the weekend off and be backÂ on Sunday. He is inÂ perfect health and ready to resume workÂ on MondayÂ morning.
“Mr. President is in good condition, he is fine, he is very well. HeÂ should take a day or two off in London and rest a bit and come back Â hale and heartyÂ on SundayÂ and be ready for workÂ on Monday. So we
expect him backÂ on Sunday.”
