Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari returned home on Sunday from London, United Kingdom, after receiving medical treatment.

President Buhari traveled to London on June 6 to rest and receive medical attention from an ear, nose and throat specialist, an official statement said.

The president was billed to return last Thursday, but vice president, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, informed cabinet members that the president’s return had been shifted to Sunday.

President Buhari arrived at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, at about 5.33 pm local time (1633 GMT) on board the presidential jet.

He was received by members of the Federal Executive Council, other top federal government officials, federal lawmakers, and service chiefs.

On arrival, Buhari inspected a guard of honor mounted by the Guards Brigade of the Nigerian Army.
