President Muhammadu Buhari will resume work today, the Presidency has said.

Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu gave the assurance last night.

He said President Buhari would transmit a letter to the National Assembly today in order to formally notify the legislature of his return to the country.

“God willing, the letter will be sent there (the National Assembly) tomorrow (today). God willing, Mr President will be in the office tomorrow (today),” Shehu stated.

President Buhari had returned to the country in the wee hours of Friday, 50 days after he departed for the United Kingdom on a medical vacation.

While Buhari was away, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo acted as president. Buhari had, at a reception held at the First Lady’s Conference Room of the State House on Friday, explained that he deliberately returned to the country towards the weekend “so that the vice president will continue and I will continue to rest.”
