[ Masterweb Reports: Omololu Ogunmade reports ] - What would have been the first meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) Wednesday to be presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari after 103 days of medical vacation in London has been cancelled.
 
The cancellation of the weekly FEC meeting, which held every Wednesday when Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo held sway as acting president, was announced by the president’s Special Adviser, Media, Mr. Femi Adesina.
 
Adesina gave no reason for the cancellation but added that Buhari would only receive the report of the Osinbajo-led committee on the suspension of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal, and the Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayo Oke, Wednesday at 12 noon.
 
The cancellation has further heightened tension about the president’s state of health as it creates the impression that the meeting might have been cancelled because the president lacked the stamina to preside over it.
 
Adesina said: "The meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) will not hold today. President Muhammadu Buhari, will however, receive the report of the investigation committee into the allegations against the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Babachir Lawal and the Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ayo Oke, headed by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, at 12 noon, in his office."

[ Masterweb Reports: Emma Elekwa reports ] - My dear citizens; I am very grateful to God and to all Nigerians for their prayers. I am pleased to be back on home soil among my brothers and sisters.
 
2. In the course of my stay in the United Kingdom, I have been kept in daily touch with events at home. Nigerians are robust and lively in discussing their affairs, but I was distressed to notice that some of the comments, especially in the social media have crossed our national red lines by daring to question our collective existence as a nation. This is a step too far.
 
3. In 2003 after I joined partisan politics, the late Chief Emeka Ojukwu came and stayed as my guest in my hometown Daura. Over two days we discussed in great depth till late into the night and analyzed the problems of Nigeria. We both came to the conclusion that the country must remain one and united.
 
4. Nigeria’s unity is settled and not negotiable. We shall not allow irresponsible elements to start trouble and when things get bad they run away and saddle others with the responsibility of bringing back order, if necessary with their blood.
 
5. Every Nigerian has the right to live and pursue his business anywhere in Nigeria without let or hindrance.
 
6. I believe the very vast majority of Nigerians share this view.
 
7. This is not to deny that there are legitimate concerns. Every group has a grievance. But the beauty and attraction of a federation is that it allows different groups to air their grievances and work out a mode of co-existence.
 
8. The National Assembly and the National Council of State are the legitimate and appropriate bodies for national discourse.
 
9. The national consensus is that, it is better to live together than to live apart.
 
10. Furthermore, I am charging the Security Agencies not to let the successes achieved in the last 18 months be a sign to relax.
 
11. Terrorists and criminals must be fought and destroyed relentlessly so that the majority of us can live in peace and safety.
 
12. Therefore we are going to reinforce and reinvigorate the fight not only against;
 
· elements of Boko Haram which are attempting a new series of attacks on soft targets
 
· kidnappings, farmers versus herdsmen clashes,
 
· in addition to ethnic violence fuelled by political mischief makers. We shall tackle them all.
 
13. Finally, dear Nigerians, our collective interest now is to eschew petty differences and come together to face common challenges of;
 
· economic security,
 
· political evolution and integration
 
· as well as lasting peace among all Nigerians.
 
14. I remain resolutely committed to ensuring that these goals are achieved and maintained. I am so glad to be home.
 
15. Thank you and may God bless our dear nation.

[ Masterweb Reports ] - Buhari was received by Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, the Chief of Staff Abba Kyari, state governors including those of Zamfara, Rivers, Imo, Kano and Bauchi States.
 
Also on hand to welcome the president were the National Security Adviser Babagana Monguno, Defence Minister Mansur Dan Ali, Information Minister Lai Mohammed, Minister of the Federal Capital Territory Mohammed Bello and service chiefs.
 
However, the president’s wife, Aisha, who has been in Lodon since August 6 to visit the president was not sighted with him on his return yesterday.
 
The director of media in the Office of the Wife of the President, Mr Suleiman Haruna told our correspondent on phone that it was yesterday that he was informed that Mrs Buhari would not arrive with her husband.
 
Haruna, however, said he did not have any information on why Mrs Buhari did not arrive with her husband and said he did not know when she would return from London.
 
Shortly after his arrival, President Buhari shook hands with government officials and later inspected a guard of honour mounted by officers and personnel of the Brigade of Guards.
 
Buhari was also briefly hosted to a traditional performance by some Fulani and Gbagyi girls before he was driven to the Aso Rock Presidential Villa.
 
President Buhari did not speak to journalists but waved at the crowd that had gathered at the airport to witness his return.
 
Hundreds of youths also stormed the airport to give the president a rousing welcome reception, chanting "Sai Baba".
 
Hundreds others lined the streets chanting and waving as the presidential motorcade made its way from the airport to Aso Rock.
 
Many supporters of the president pulled dangerous car and motorcycle stunts on the streets, weaving from side to side with supporters hanging out of the car windows chanting "Baba Oyoyo" in celebrations that were reminiscent of Buhari’s victory at the 2015 polls.
 
The president however returns at a crucial time in the country, with the economy is less than impressive form and national unity at one of its lowest ebbs in the country’s history despite Acting President Yemi Osinbajo’s efforts to steady the ship in Buhari’s absence. There have been protests both in Nigeria and London over the president’s long absence and the secrecy with which his health crisis has been handled.
 
The chairman of the All Progressive Governors Forum, Rochas Okorocha of Imo State, acknowledge the weight of expectation accompanying the president’s return in view of the state of the nation.
 
"It is good news for Nigerians and for everyone here (at the airport) for the president to arrive and resume his duties. This has put paid to the various views being expressed. He has had enough time to ponder on several issues and review them.
 
"There are so much expectations from Nigerians. They want to know what next and they want to see what next from him," Okorocha said,
 
While commending Acting President Yemi Osinbajo for being so committed and faithful to his boss, Okorocha said, "The impact of the president’s return is that it will rejuvenate the economy, polity. He will do a lot of restructuring and rejigging because Nigerians are expecting a lot from him."
 
Already the Bauchi State Governor Mohammed Abubakar has suggested that the president’s return has had an immediate impact saying, "The impact of his return is huge. If you look at the stock exchange you will see the impact. Not that Prof. Osinbajo did not do a good job while the President was away but now that he is returning you will see the impact on the economy."
 
In the weeks before the president’s return, various interest groups have organized protests calling for the president to "resume or resign". There were even protests in London on Friday, a day before Buhari returned.
 
Addressing State House correspondents, presidential spokesman, Mr Femi Adesina, debunked insinuations that Buhari’s return was prompted by Friday’s protest in London.
 
Adesina said before that protest, he and other government officials had been made aware of the president’s imminent return.
 
News of the President’s return was broken Saturday morning in a statement by Adesina.
 
"President Muhammadu Buhari returns to the country later today after receiving medical attention in London," he said in the statement.
 
The Presidential spokesperson also said that Buhari would address the country by 7am on Monday.
 
"He thanks all Nigerians who have prayed ceaselessly for his recovery and well-being since the beginning of the health challenge," the statement added.
 
But Information Minister, Lai Mohammed said everyone was surprised and glad that the president has returned.
