President Muhammadu Buhari has formally resumed work in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The President, who returned to the country on Friday after a medical vacation in London, entered his office at around 11.15 a.m.
Malam Garba Shehu, the president’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, confirmed the development while fielding questions from State House correspondents in Abuja on Monday.
Shehu said that the president would later hold meeting with Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo.
The Elite Times recalls that the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President, Mr Femi Adesina, on Friday, on his twitter handle, revealed that Buhari would transmit a letter to the National Assembly indicating his resumption of work after his vacation in London.
He said that the letter would formalise the president’s return.
He said: “PMB (President Muhammadu Buhari) will on Monday transmit letter to National Assembly on his return to the country. That makes his return to work formal and constitutional.’’
Adesina’s post debunks some reports indicating that the President has asked Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to continue to act on his behalf.
