President Muhammadu Buhari is scheduled to return to the country on Saturday.

The ailing President who has been receiving follow-up medical attention in London since May 7 is also scheduled to address Nigerians in a nationwide broadcast on Monday.

Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, made this known in a press statement on Saturday morning.

“President Muhammadu Buhari returns to the country later today, after receiving medical attention in London.

The President had left the country on May 7, this year, after handing over power to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who has functioned as Acting President since then.

President Buhari is expected to speak to Nigerians in a broadcast by 7 a.m on Monday, August 21, 2017.

He thanks all Nigerians who have prayed ceaselessly for his recovery and well-being since the beginning of the health challenge,” the statement read.

President Buhari is returning to the country after over 100 days in London amidst tension over the activities of the ‘OurMumuDonDo’ protesters, who called on him to resume work or resign.
