According to President Buhari's spokesperson, Femi Adesina, the economic briefing lasted for about two hours.

The meeting is the president's first this week after he had a series of meetings with several leaders at his home office last week.

Since his resumption to office on Monday, August 21, the president has met with an investigative panel headed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, as well as the country's security council.

On Friday, August 26, he met with leaders of the ruling party, the All Progressives' Congress (APC) and main opposition party, the People's Democratic Party (PDP), and later hosted state governors from across the country.

This is coming after the president's 103 days of medical vacation away in London where he was treated for an undisclosed illness.
