After Resting For Weeks In France, Tinubu Returns To Nigeria


    Excitement and jubilation rent the air when President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, touched down at the international wing of the Nnamdi Azikwe airport, Abuja.

    Supporters in their numbers gathered to welcome the president-elect, and went whooping the moment Tinubu stepped out of the plane.

    Shouts of ‘Jagaban’, ‘on your mandate’, ‘Mr. President’ could be heard in ebullient voices as Tinubu waves in acknowledgment of the rousing welcome.

    His Media Office had, in a statement in March, explained that he travelled to France to rest and plan his transition programme after a very exhaustive campaign and election season.

    The president-elect had left the country through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja.

    According to the statement, the president-elect decided to take a break after the hectic campaign and election season to rest in Paris and London, preparatory to going to Saudi Arabia for Umrah (Lesser Hajj) and the Ramadan Fasting.

    The statement also added that while away, the president-elect would also use the opportunity to plan his transition programme.

    “He has directed all the senior aides and campaign staff to also go and observe a short rest. He is expected back in the country soon. We enjoin the media to stop publishing rumours and unsubstantiated claims and to always seek clarifications from our office,” his media office reportedly said.

    On his return to the country, the president-elect is expected to hit the ground running to address certain issues that would ensure effective take-off of his government on inauguration on May 29.
