Confusion over return of President Buhari
There is confusion over the return of President Muhammadu Buhari to Nigeria on Friday as there were conflicting reports as to his arrival.
Reports monitored by Ripples Nigeria say the president may have landed the Kaduna Airport at about 4am Friday, and was taken by chopper to Abuja.
However, sources at the Presidential Villa say they are yet to see him at the official residence.
When Ripples Nigeria put a call through to Mr Femi Adesina for clarifications, he frantically said, “I can’t take your calls now, I can’t take your calls now”.
Adesina, the Special Adviser to President Buhari on Media and Publicity had sent out a release on Thursday night informing the nation that Buhari who has been away in London on medical vacation is expected back today (Friday).
