President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday thanked his deputy, VP Yemi Osinbajo, for the efforts at leading the country, while he  was away in London for an undisclosed ailment treatment.

The president, also threw shade at those who taunted for his return by protesting in London to return to Nigeria or resign.

“The effort by the vice president is commendable,” said Mr. Buhari, when he hosted governors on Friday. “He used his intellect to run all over the place. I was seeing him 24 hours on NTA.”

Mr. Buhari returned to Nigeria last Saturday and returned to duties as president the following Monday. He had travelled to London, the United Kingdom, since May 7 to treat an undisclosed ailment.

While the president was away, Mr. Osinbajo led Nigeria in acting capacity and earned praises for the leadership he displayed.

 

The president thanked Nigerians who prayed for his quick recovery. He was quoted as saying “I’m very happy with the national prayers. It was very covered and reported, across religions and ethnicity, people were praying (for my recovery),” he said.

He said his morale had been “raised greatly” by the “love shown to him”

Mr. Buhari spent 103 days in London. Before his arrival, there had been protests in Abuja and London, asking him to return to work as Nigeria’s president or resign. He also noted this today, subtly mocking Nigerians, who staged protest at the Abuja House where he stayed in London.

He said: “In fact some groups in London came and sang the national anthem and asked that I should go back home. Indeed, I have come back home. I hope those who went there are not stuck there…those that are stuck there with the Brexit, I hope they have weighed the implications that it won’t affect them, including those that have properties there, those who are not paying tax there.

“I hope when they sell their properties, there they will bring some of the money here. We need it very badly here.”

 

Mr. Buhari  also praised the governors for “doing (best) best in agriculture and solid minerals. “I am very pleased with the states,” he said.
