President Muhammadu Buhari returned to Nigeria on Friday after more than a month-long medical vacation in the United Kingdom.

The president arrived in the country through Kaduna Airport following Wednesday’s closure of Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, for rehabilitation.

The Presidential plane landed at the VIP Wing of the 401 Flying Training School of the Nigerian Air Force, Kaduna, at about 7.40 a.m.

He was received by the Deputy Governor of Kaduna State, Mr Barnabas Bantex.

The president was later flown by a presidential helicopter to Abuja.

Buhari left the country on Jan. 19 on a 10-day vacation which he said he would also use to have a medical check-up.

The leave was later extended based on a medical advice by his doctors to enable them carry out further tests and treatment on the president.
