The Presidential jet arrived the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja at about 5.32pm. The President stepped out of the aircraft at 5:42pm

  He was received by Zamfara State Governor, Abdulaziz Yari; Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello; members of the Federal Executive Council, top government officials, federal lawmakers and service chiefs, among others.

On arrival, Buhari inspected a guard of honour mounted by men of the Guards Brigade.

Buhari left the country on June 6 for a 10-day vacation during which he was expected to see ENT specialists over a persistent ear infection.

 But last Thursday, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo told State House correspondents‎, shortly before the commencement of the National Economic Council meeting, that President Buhari would now return on Sunday because he needed to take the weekend off.‎‎
