Buhari returned to the country on Friday morning after a medical vacation in the UK.

“I deliberately came back towards the weekend so that the vice-president will continue and I will continue to rest. Thank you very much,” he said.

Shortly after his arrival, he met with top government officials at the first lady conference room of the presidential villa in Abuja.

Abba Kyari, chief of staff to the president; Babagana Monguno, national security adviser; Lawal Daura, director-general of the Department of State Services (DSS) and Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman; were among those who attended the meeting.

Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano state, and Abdulaziz Yari, his Zamfara state counterpart, also attended.

Buhari expressed gratitude to all those who prayed for him during his time in London, and asked for more prayers.

He said he was feeling better, but still needed to rest.

He retired into his residence at the end of the meeting.

Buhari left the country on January 19, after transmitting a letter to the national assembly that he was going on a 10-day vacation.

He told the lawmakers that he had handed over to Osinbajo, who was in Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum, at the time.

Osinbajo had to cut short his trip to take over the responsibilities.

Buhari was expected back in the country on February 5, but he extended his vacation indefinitely, saying he was awaiting results of some medical tests.

Two weeks after, Adesina said the results of the tests showed his principal needed a longer period of rest.

But on Sunday, Buhari hinted that the end of his medical vacation was near.

The president had told Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi state, that he would soon return to the country to continue his assignment of “providing purposeful leadership for the nation”.

    Welcome back Presido.
    A very good place to continue your rest in-country would be at Obudu Cattle Ranch. The fresh air and high altitude would no doubt rejuvenate your health. We pray for your speedy recovery, in Jesus name.

    Shame to all the people who were carrying all the fake rumours, Fayose and co. After now I will not be taking what comes out of the mouth of some people serious because I now begin to wonder how they come about their news. Just sit their in their comfort zone and draft out rubbish news to spread out

    I thank almighty Allah for your safe returns to Nigeria. Almighty Allah will continue to protect you, guide you sir. Now you are back home safely. Pls sir, look after the country. I am only asking you to do few things which I know you can do sir with support of almighty. 1 electricity in the country is very important in high function country. 2, Our image in other countries. 3, There are no more 32 pages Nigeria passport. There is no information in any Nigerian web sites to indicate that people should not apply for this. No information in Nigerian house to alert you not to apply for it. People will go and waist a whole day at Nigerian house and at the end of the day you will be told that no passport available, whilst some people that came after you will be issued a passport.
    Pls sir help us. Almighty Allah will help you. He will continue to be your strengths. Insha Allah.

    Good to have a man who can be entrusted with power. I entusted just 8 boxes of my clothes and personal effects to an Igbo guy. Up till now, he is still at large. But we will get him anyway. Because the leg he wiuld have used to run, God don break am in a ghastly accident. Now how can such generation be entrusted with something as big as power?
