According to a report by Channels TV, Professor Osinbajo told reporters on Saturday in Abuja shortly after he received the President that he is happy President Buhari came back in good health.
He said, “The message to Nigerians is that the recovery and recuperation of the president in some sense is symbolic of that fact that Nigeria is going to recover.”
“We are on the path to ensure economic recovery and this is a good sign. Our country is on the right path; there is a great hope, there is great excitement and we are going to make it as a nation.”
Osinbajo, who has been holding the fort for the president in an acting capacity, said Nigerians are also happy to see their president return home after spending 103 days in the United Kingdom.
“I am extremely happy that the president is back in good health. Many Nigerians – as we can see while coming out from the airport – are very excited to see the president”.
The presidential jet left London at 10:27 AM and touched down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport at about 4:38 PM on Saturday.
President Buhari was received at the airport by Professor Osinbajo and members of the Federal Executive Council among other dignitaries.
Earlier, the special adviser on media and publicity to the president, Mr Femi Adeshina, said President Buhari would address Nigerians on Monday, August 21.
Meanwhile, some Nigerians took to the streets of Abuja welcome the president back to the country from his medical vacation.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) also joined the people to welcome President Buhari back home.
