President Muhammadu Buhari has said that he is resuming work stronger and more energetic.
The president stated this while fielding questions from State House correspondents on Sunday at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, after a vacation in London.
President Buhari, jokingly, challenged one of the correspondents, who asked him of his state of health, to a wrestling competition.
“You have seen me, you saw me when I was going, you can do the assessment by yourself.
“You can see me inspecting the guards of honour, if you want to wrestle me, you can do so, but you know I’m taller than you,’’ the president told the reporter.
The president, who was clad in a light brown kaftan with a cap to match, did not use the helicopter meant to transport him to the presidential villa, but rather embarked on road journey.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the presidential plane carrying the president landed at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport at about 5.32 p.m.
Members of the Federal Executive Council, Service Chiefs, Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari and Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase were among those who welcomed President Buhari at the airport.
Others at the airport were Gov. Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara, Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi and other government functionaries.(NAN)
