President Muhammadu Buhari’s recovery is symbolic of the recovery of the country, the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, said on Saturday.
He expressed happiness with the return of President Muhammadu Buhari from medical vacation in London.
Osinbajo, who has been the Acting President since May 7, when the President left for London, told journalists that , “`the message to Nigerians is that first the recovery and the recuperation of the president is in some sense symbolic of the recovery of Nigeria’’.
”Nigeria is going to recover. We are on the path to sure economic recovery.
”This is a good sign, it is an excellent sign that our country is on the right path.
”There is great hope, there is great excitement and we are going to make it as a nation and as a people,’’ Osinbajo added.
Reacting to the reception of the President at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, Osinbajo said it was a massive and spontaneous action as many Nigerians heard of the return only few hours earlier.
”We are very excited and I am extremely happy that the President is back in good health and roaring to go; it is so good to see him.
“Many Nigerians as you could see from the Airport reception were very excited to see the President. People had prayed, people had hoped; it is just a natural reaction just seeing him and hearing that he is around.
