BUHARI MEETS OSINBAJO, SECURITY CHIEFS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS

President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday held a meeting with the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, and Service Chiefs at the State House, Abuja. The President was said to have been formally welcomed by Osinbajo, who had been the Acting President, at the meeting which held behind closed doors.


He is expected to address the nation on Monday morning and will receive full briefing of events that occurred during his absence by the Service Chiefs. Buhari had returned to the country on Saturday after over 100 days medical vacation in the United Kingdom.

Osinbajo, while speaking to State House correspondents on the President’s return, said: “As you can see from the many Nigerians who lined up on the road to receive the President as he came back, many Nigerians are happy that the President is hail and hearty and that he has come back.

“It was a natural reaction, most people heard of his arrival only a few hours before then, but as you can see, the response was so spontaneous. So, I think that people were so exited and very happy.”

“The message to Nigerians is that, the recovery and recuperation of the President is in some sense symbolic of the recovery of Nigeria.”

“Nigeria is going to recover. We are on the path of strong economic recovery and this is an excellent sign that the country is on the right side.”

“There is great hope, there is great excitement and we are going to make it as a nation,” he stated.
