Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday said that President Muhammadu Buhari will return to Nigeria on Sunday.
Buhari had taken 10 days medical vacation to treat an ear infection in London.
The medical vacation expired on Wednesday and the President was supposed to resume on Thursday based on the letter communicated to the National Assembly before he traveled out.
But speaking with State House correspondents before the National Economic Council (NEC) meeting commenced at the Presidential Villa, Abuja
Osinbajo said that it is best for the President to take the weekend off.
According to him, the President is in perfect health condition and will be ready to resume office on Monday morning.
He said: “The President will be back on Sunday. I spoke with him yesterday evening and I think it is just the best that he takes the weekend off. He will certainly be back on Sunday.
“I think the most straightforward thing is when he will be back. He will be back on Sunday. There is no point rushing back on Friday or something like that.
“He will just take the weekend off and be back on Sunday. He is in perfect health and ready to resume work on Monday morning.
“Mr. President is in good condition, he is fine, he is very well. He should take a day or two off in London and rest a bit and come back hale and hearty on Sunday and be ready for work on Monday. So we expect him back on Sunday.” He stated.
