President Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday, finally returned to his main office inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja, about 81 days after he returned to the country from his medical trip to London, United Kingdom.
THEWILL recalls that Buhari, who arrived the country on August 19 to a wild jubilation by Nigerians after spending over 100 in London, has been operating from an office located inside his official residence and another one located inside the Presidential Banquet Hall.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, had said the President’s office needed renovation because it had been infested by rodents during his long period of absence.
“Following the three months period of disuse, rodents have caused a lot of damage to the furniture and the air conditioning units,” he had said.
Although he said he could not tell when the renovation would be completed, Shehu had stated that the maintenance company had been asked to speed up its pace of work.
However, the President, on Thursday, entered the office for the first time since he returned to the country as he inaugurated the Armed Forces Council inside one of the halls located inside the main office.
The President’s Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, later confirmed the resumption on his Twitter handle, @BashirAhmad.
