Read President’s speech to Nigerians on return from London

Buhari, who departed the country on January 19, arrived in Kaduna at about 7am before being transported to Abuja.

Nigerian President Mohammadu Buhari said he couldn't remember being so sick since he was a young man

Read his address to Nigerians below:

“I   am   deeply   grateful   to   all   Nigerians   –   Muslims   and Christians alike who have prayed and are continuing to pray for my good health. This is a testimony that in spite of the   hardship   being   experienced,   Nigerians   support the Government in its effort to tackle our country’s challenges.”

“The  best  way  for  me  to  repay  you  all   is  to  re-dedicate myself   to   serving   you,   protecting   your   interests  and keeping your trust. I thank you very much.

“I   am   feeling   much   better   now,   there   may,   however,   be need   to   have   further   follow-ups   within   some  weeks. Rather than sending delegation upon delegation to Abuja to welcome me, may I appeal to all Nigerians to continue to pray for our country’s unity, progress and prosperity. I thank you very much and may God bless our Country!”

Meanwhile, President Buhari has said that Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo will continue governing so he can get some more rest.

He also said that he might need to return for follow-up treatment soon.
