The president, whose absence has led to concerns about government paralysis, landed at an Air Force base in Kaduna, and is due to travel to Abuja, the capital, Ahmad said.

The president handed over to Mr. Osinbajo, who has been acting president for the past 50 days.

The body said the constitution of the committee, which was to be made up of medical experts headed by the President's chief physician, was in line with section 144 of the Nigeria's constitution. "He has also improved the fortunes of the exchange rate and curbed the activities of herdsmen; we want Buhari to build on that", he said.

He also said that it was meaningless for Nigerians to continue to believe without double-checking for facts, further comments by Mohammed.

He said: "Having said that, I am pleased that I am back". I thank you very much. However, the ageing former military leader was forced to extend his stay by more than one month on the advice of his doctors. "I have rested as much as humanly possible, I have received I think the best of treatment I could receive".

He said, "There are a lot of uncertainties surrounding the state of health of President Buhari and many Nigerians, particularly the over 70 per cent of the Yoruba people, who voted him into office, are even being denied information about the President's state of health".

A civic group, CISLAC, had earlier commended the president for asking Mr. Osinbajo to act as president while he recovered.

Adesina, in a tweet on his handle yesterday afternoon, said the President would transmit a letter to the National Assembly on Monday to make his return to work formal and constitutional. According to the vice president, "It is a day of joy not only for us but for the whole country, Africa and the world".
