President Muhammadu Buhari’s spokesman, Femi Adesina has said that the president will be back soon.
Adesina also said that there will be no special event to welcome Buhari back home.
The presidential spokesman made the comments on Thursday, February 16, during an interview with Arise TV.
“The fact that the president is receiving visitors, the fact that he has spoken with the American president and the fact that he has asked us to tell the world that he’s fine. I think that’s just enough,” he said.
“I wish I could give you a definite date, I really wish but then we just have to hang on to what the president has told us. In the letter to the National Assembly, he said ‘as soon as his doctors rule out some things.
“I will just tell Nigerians to stay on the alert and watch and before they know it the president is back. It could be anytime. You don’t need much preparation; I will tell you what will happen.
“On the morning of a certain day, we will just receive an alert from protocol that the president is on the way. And six hours later, they’ll be here. The president is a simple man,” he added.
President Buhari has been out of the country since January 19 when he travelled to London for a 10-day medical vacation.
The president was due to resume on February 6 but he wrote the Senate on February 5 to extend his vacation indefinitely.
In the letter, Buhari said that he would not return to Nigeria until his doctors rule out “certain factors.”
However, Senate President, Bukola Saraki, who visited Buhari on Wednesday, February 15, said that there’s no cause for alarm over the president’s health.
