Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu has said that the president will be back in the country soon because he misses “his people.”

Shehu also said that the president is no longer enjoying his vacation in the United Kingdom.

He made the revelation on Tuesday, February 14, while appearing on Channels TV.

“As a matter of fact, we should be getting ready to see the president in fresh and that will be soon as possible. The President (himself) is looking to being home to be with his people,” Shehu said.

“I don’t think he is enjoying any longer with an extended vacation outside the country,” he added.

Shehu also said that details of the recent conversation between Buhari and US President, Donald Trump will not be released to the public.

“No, I don’t think so; I don’t think it is permitted in international diplomacy. I think if we had recorded Mr Trump in this conversation it would have offended our diplomatic relations,” he said.

“I think the Americans themselves would not have recorded this conversation of president to president,’’ he added.

Buhari spoke to Trump on Monday, February 13, from London.

The Nigerian president has been in London since January 19 when he began his medical vacation.

Buhari was due to resume on February 6 but he wrote the Senate on February 5 to extend his vacation indefinitely.
