ABUJA-President Mohammadu Buhari would be back to the country, Nigeria, on Sunday, Vice President Osinbajo has said.

Recall that President Buhari left Nigeria for London, United Kingdom on a 10 day medical trip to treat an ear infection on Monday, June 6, 2016.

He was due to return to Abuja at the expiration of the 10 days leave today to resume duties on Thursday.

But Vice, Osinbajo has said he would stay back in London to rest a while.

Speaking to State House Correspondents shortly before the commencement of the National Economic Council, NEC meeting on Wednesday, Osinbajo said the president would come back on Sunday.

He added that the president was in good health.

“The President will be back on Sunday. I spoke with him yesterday evening and I think it is just the best that he takes the weekend off. He will certainly be back on Sunday.

“I think the most straightforward thing is when he will be back. He will be back on Sunday. There is no point rushing back on Friday or something like that.

“He will just take the weekend off and be back on Sunday.

“He is in perfect health and ready to resume work on Monday morning.

“Mr. President is in good condition, he is fine, he is very well. He should take a day or two off in London and rest a bit and come back hale and hearty on Sunday and be ready for work on Monday.

“So we expect him back on Sunday”, he said.
