President Muhammadu Buhari has resumed his official duties after a 49-day medical vacation in London.

Buhari resumed work at the Presidential Villa on Monday, March 13, after returning to Nigeria on Friday, March 10.

The president wrote the Senate and House of Representatives on Monday to inform them of his resumption.

“I resumed work today. I've formally transmitted letters to @NGRSenate & @HouseNGR, in compliance with S145 of the amended 1999 Constitution,” Buhari said.

 

“As I settle down to work, first things first—I received a briefing from Vice President @ProfOsinbajo,” he added.

 

Buhari was originally meant to spend 10 days on leave but he wrote the Senate on February 5 to extend his vacation indefinitely.

The president said at the time that he would not be able to return until his doctors ruled out certain factors.

Upon his return, the president confessed that he had never been so sick in his entire life.
