The All Progressives Congress (APC) has welcomed President Muhammadu Buhari back to the country after his medical vacation in the United Kingdom.
In a message by its National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi, the party says it believes Buhari is “now well rested and has returned with new vigour and optimism to fix the challenges facing our people and fulfil the promises our Party made to Nigerians during the 2015 elections.”
The party joins others to applaud Buhari’s decision to hand over to his deputy before leaving Nigeria on January 19.
“We thank the President for following due process and properly handing over to his deputy, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and thereby saving the country the needless controversies and crises that we experienced in the past,” the statement continues.
“The Party also commend the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo for competently holding forte on behalf of Mr. President and for his loyalty and commitment to the Change Agenda of our Party.
“We thank Nigerians and all men and women of goodwill who have been praying for the health and safe return of the President and note that the government is fully committed to the Party’s manifesto of Change, couched on true transformation in every area of national life.”
