Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina has stated that his principal will not sneak into the country when he returns from his vacation abroad.
He said this in a telephone chat with DAILY POST Saturday afternoon.
Our correspondent had contacted Adesina to speak on the speculations that the president will return home this weekend.
Adesina said: “If the president returns, we will all see him. He is the president of Nigeria and will not sneak in.”
Asked if his reaction was a sign he doesn’t know exactly when the president will return, Adesina replied: “Don’t put words in my mouth please.
“I said when the president returns, Nigerians will see him. It’s not like he will sneak in, so let’s wait.”
Meanwhile, reports say staff of the presidency, especially presidential aides, have been put on standby over the imminent return of President Buhari from London, United Kingdom.
Buhari, who left Nigeria on January 19, was initially scheduled to return to the country last Sunday for resumption to office last Monday.
The presidency, however, issued a statement announcing that Buhari had notified the National Assembly of his decision to extend his vacation over medical tests and results.
It was gathered on Saturday that presidential aides and officials of the Protocol Unit, as well as security operatives, had been put on the alert over the President’s imminent arrival.
Meanwhile, Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo has assured the people of Niger Delta of new vision and a new compact of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
He spoke on Friday during a working visit to Bayelsa State.
