    • as wife says husband is recuperating fast

    ABUJA, June 6 – Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to return home from medical leave at the weekend, presidency sources said on Tuesday.
    Meanwhile Mrs Aisha Buhari, in a statement issued by State House, expressed appreciation for the support of Nigerians and said “he will soon be with them as he is recuperating fast”.

    Buhari left Abuja on May 7 and handed over power to his deputy, Yemi Osinbajo, seeking to allay concerns of a void at the helm of Africa’s biggest economy.

    The president, 74, travelled to Britain last month for what his office described as medical tests. Officials have refused to disclose details of his medical condition. His first absence began in January and lasted nearly two months.
