President Muhammadu Buhari, who returned on Saturday from a 103-day medical vacation in the United Kingdom, will be operating from his home, a presidency official said on Monday.
This is, however, not as a result of his health, but due to some renovations at the president’s office.
The President’s Special Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, confirmed this on Twitter, while reacting to speculations about the development.
He tweeted: “Some renovations are ongoing at the office. He’s a fully equipped office in his residence, he’ll be back to the main office after the works.”
Speaking with State House correspondents on Buhari’s resumption in office, the Special Adviser on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, disclosed that the President has communicated his resumption to office to the National Assembly.
He said: “Yes, some few minutes past 11, the President signed the letter notifying the National Assembly of his resumption. A copy has been sent to the Senate President and also has been sent to the Speaker, House of Representatives, so the President has resumed.”
The President returned to the country on Saturday, after spending 104 days in the UK on medical vacation.
