Excerpt for any last minute change of plans, President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to return back to Nigeria on Sunday after his 10-day vacation in London, United Kingdom.
A reliable source in the presidency made this known on Friday.
The source added that top government officials are expected to receive the President at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja.
“There are no indications yet that he will not be back on Sunday. If he will not return, he would have communicated that to the National Assembly. Since he has not done that, then he is expected back,” the source said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) has mobilised 15,000 youths to welcome the president from London.
The youths would assemble at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja, to welcome Buhari, who has been away on vacation.
The President proceeded on a 10-day vacation in London on Jan. 23 and is expected to return to Nigeria on Feb. 6, 2017.
Malam Gambo Jagindi, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President of NYCN, Murtala Gamji, who unveiled the youths programme in Abuja on Friday said the time had come for youths, who are the future leaders, to show love, solidarity and support for the President.
“ The National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) has concluded arrangements to mobilise not less than 15,000 of its members to be at Abuja airport on Feb. 6, to welcome President Buhari from vacation.
“It is on record that integrity, discipline and honesty are gradually returning to our public life unlike in the past when impunity was the order of the day,’’ the spokesman said.
