This is coming only hours after it was revealed that the president had written a letter to the National Assembly, notifying the legislature on the resumption of his duties as the president of the country.

In the letter, the president had written, "In compliance with Section 145 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended), I write to intimate you that I have resumed my functions as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria with effect from Monday, 21st August, 2017, after my medical follow-up in the United Kingdom."

President Buhari made his return to the country on Saturday, August 19, 103 days after he left for London to resume treatment for an undisclosed illness.
