Daily Trust is reporting that Ibrahim Dasuki Nakande, a former Minister of State for Information, has claimed that he has information suggesting that President Muhammad Buhari could return to Nigeria today March 6.
The newspaper quoted Nakande as saying this during another special prayer session, attended by hundreds of clerics, for the quick recovery of the president that was held on Sunday, March 5 at the Jos Central Mosque.
If Nakande’s information is correct, then President Buhari could return today March 6 after over thirty days in the UK.
“From the information I gathered, President Buhari is hale
and sound and may come back today (yesterday) or tomorrow (today). All what is needed from us is prayer for the full recovery and God’s guidance for the president to deliver his campaign promises,” Nakande said.
Nakande was also quoted as saying President Buhari has been speaking with different stakeholders, including the leadership of the National Assembly including Senate president, Bukola Saraki, who had visited the Nigerian leader in London and confirmed that he is doing well.
Nakande said Buhari is Nigeria’s saviour from the current economic and political mess that it is in.
“It is only Buhari that can take this nation out of the mess it found itself,” he said.
Nakande’s words come just days after Sahara Reporters wrote that President Buhari’s aides are allegedly trying to get him back to Aso Rock in Abuja before the eight-week closure of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in the Federal Capital Territory if possible.
“Some of Mr. President’s associates are mounting pressure on him to return to Abuja as soon as possible, and especially before the [Abuja] airport is temporarily closed,” Sahara Reporters quoted a source close to the presidency as saying.
