President Muhammadu Buhari has on Monday resumed duty after 100 days in London where he was undergoing treatment for an undisclosed ailment.

In Buhari’s letter to the National Assembly, “In compliance with Section 145 of the 1999 Constitution (as amended), I write to intimate that I have resumed my functions as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria with effect from Monday, 21st August 2017, after my medical follow-up in the United Kingdom.”

However, there are suggestions that he may likely operate from his official residence at the villa.

A source revealed to newsmen, that Julius Berger, the construction giant was currently renovating the office.

‎Recall Buhari left for London on May 7, 2017, and handed over reins to the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo.

According to Special Adviser on media and publicity, Femi Adesina “Yes, some few minutes past 11 am, the President signed the letter notifying the National Assembly of his resumption.

“A copy has been sent to the Senate President and a copy has been sent to the Speaker, House of Representatives, so the President has resumed.”

On Nigerians reaction to the President’s broadcast that his message was not explicit enough, Adesina said, “that broadcast was just one step of many steps that are going to be taken in the days and weeks and months ahead so you can’t expect that everything will be said in one day.”
