Don’t send delegates to me, Buhari tells well-wishers


President Muhammadu Buhari has warned his well-wishers across the country against sending delegates to congratulate him on his return to the country.

Buhari, who was on medical vacation to the UK for 51 days arrived Abuja on Friday.

The president, however, at his first meeting with Vice-President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and other ministers in Aso Rock spoke against the expected traditionally visit of politicians and monarchs.

He said, “I am deeply grateful to all Nigerians Muslims and Christians alike who have prayed and continue to pray for my good health. This is a testimony that inspite of the hardship being experienced Nigerians support the government in its efforts to tackle our country’s challenges.

“The best way me to pay you all is to rededicate myself to serving you, protecting your interest and keeping your trust. I thank you very much. I feel much better now.

“All I will need is to do further follow ups within some weeks.

“Rather than sending delegations to Abuja to welcome me, May I appeal to our people to continue to pray for the country’s unity, progress and prosperity. I thank you very much and may God bless our country.”
