President Buhari: "I've never been so sick"

BACK HOME: President Muhammadu Buhari

NIGERIAN PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has said he has never been "so sick" as he has felt in recent weeks.

Speaking to dignitaries in the capital, Abuja, after returning from seven weeks of medical leave in the UK, he said he is "feeling much better now" but added that further medical checks would be required.

Addressing the country from the State House, shortly after arriving from London, President Buhari said he was fully committed to serving the nation and protecting the right of all Nigerians.

‘‘I am deeply grateful to all Nigerians, Muslims and Christians alike who have prayed and have continued 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 president said.

Buhari's absence resulted in some anxiety in Nigeria, with many speculations surrounding the president's health.

As a result of his leave, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo was left in charge and Mr Buhari's spokesperson has tweeted that he will formally return to power on Monday (Mar 13).
