President Muhammadu Buhari has returned to the country after his trip to the US and a “technical stopover” in London, UK.
Buhari left the country on Saturday and headed to Washington DC where he met with President Donald Trump and some investors.
He left the US on Tuesday but did not return to Nigeria until late on Thursday.
The presidential aircraft carrying the president and some members of his entourage landed at the presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja at about 10.35pm.
Abba Kyari, chief of staff to the president, and Musa Bello, minister of the federal capital territory, were among those who received the president at the airport.
Femi Adesina, the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, had announced Buhari’s imminent return via his personnel twitter handle on Thursday afternoon.
According to him, “MB arrives Abuja this evening. The good work of rebuilding Nigeria continues.”
Buhari was in Washington for three days during which he met President Donald Trump at the White House.
Earlier today, Garba Shehu, a presidential media assistant, had explained that President Buhari “had technical stopover in London and will be on his way back soon”.
