President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday returned to Abuja after a two-week stay in London, United Kingdom.
The Nigeria Air Force 1 jet carrying him touched down at the presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja at about 18.00 hours.
He was received on arrival by his Chief of Staff, Prof Ibrahim Gambari; National Security Adviser, Major-General Babagana Monguno (rtd); Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), General Lucky Irabor; service chiefs, the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister, Mohammed Musa Bello.
While at the airport, President Buhari inspected a guard of honour mounted by officers and men of the Guards Brigade of the Nigerian Army before watching displays by cultural troops representing different Nigerian cultures.
He later departed the airport aboard a helicopter to the presidential villa.
The President left the country on July 26 to London to attend the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) organized Global Education Summit (GES) before undergoing a scheduled medical check-up.
On Thursday, he paid a visit to former Lagos State Governor and chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, who is said to be recovering from an illness in the United Kingdom.
