President Muhammadu Buhari, will on Monday transmit a letter to the National Assembly to formally indicate his return to the country.
A Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media, Femi Adesina, made this known through a tweet on Friday.
“PMB will Monday transmit a letter to National Assembly on his return to the country. That makes his return to work formal, and constitutional,” Mr. Adesina.
The president was, however, absent at the weekly Jumat prayer at the Aso Rock Mosque where top government officials and aides had waited to see him.
Mr. Buhari had returned to the country earlier in the day and met with very close aides and officials, including Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.
At the meeting, the president called for concerted effort to give Nigerian children a good education in order to be relevant in a world driven by technology.
He said the world was fast changing, and more efforts must be made to equip the younger generation with relevant skills to compete in the global economy.
“My single advice is that we must take education seriously, and we must do much more to educate our children,” he said.
He said the government would continue to discourage Nigerians from self-medication, urging those with discomforts to ensure they get a proper diagnosis and doctor’s prescription for drugs.
He lauded the quality of treatment he got during his medical vacation.
The president said he had been conscious of the challenges faced in repositioning the economy of the country, noting that it would receive more attention.
He expressed satisfaction with the way the vice president led the country while he was away in London.
