President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday spoke from London to Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi revealing he will soon return to the country to resume his presidential duties.
This was made known by Kingsley Fanwo, spokesman of Yahaya Bello, governor of Kogi state.
Fanwo said Buhari’s call came in while Bello was returning from Abeokuta, Ogun state capital, where he had attended the 80th birthday anniversary of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
“He (President Muhammadu Buhari) told the governor that he is observing rest and will return very soon to Nigeria to continue his assignment of providing purposeful leadership for the nation,” Fanwo said in a statement.
“The conversation took place in the presence of the speaker, Kogi state house of assembly, Ahmed Imam, and a few other members of the house, commissioners and other top government functionaries, who accompanied Governor Bello to Abeokuta.”
Fanwo said Buhari thanked the governor for his support and his leadership qualities.
