President Muhammadu Buhari has thanked Nigerians who have been sending good wishes and praying for his health in mosques and churches across the country.
In a statement issued by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President said that he was immensely grateful for the prayers, the show of love and concern.
He also reassured Nigerians that there is no cause for worry.
The statement reads “During his normal annual checkup, tests showed he needed a longer period of rest, necessitating the President staying longer than originally planned.”
The President had embarked on the medical vacation in the United Kingdom since 19th of January 2017.
