Buhari Remains Indoors After His Return

According to reports, President Muhammadu Buhari remained indoors inside his official residence on Saturday, March 11, 24 hours after he returned to the country from a 49-day medical vacation.

Recall he returned to the country in the early hours of Friday from London, United Kingdom, where he had been on medical sojourn since January 19.

Shortly after meeting some state governors and top government officials led by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo at the First Lady Conference Hall, Buhari retired into his official residence.

The President, who was conspicuously absent at the Jumat service held inside the mosque close to his office later in the day, has not been seen in public since then.

PUNCH who monitored events at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, for a few hours on Saturday reported that Buhari remained indoors throughout the day.

“The President is indoors. He is spending time with his family members. You know he has been away for a long time. There is the need for them to catch up on some issues since he travelled,” a source said.

It was also observed that the Presidential Villa was devoid of heavy vehicular movement that always characterises the visits of prominent politicians and top government officials.

A security source said but for a few family members and close friends, Buhari has not been receiving visitors since he returned on Friday.
