Fielding questions from reporters after his 10-day trip to the United Kingdom, Buhari said he is ready to settle down and swear in the new cabinet. A reporter had asked him, “What kind of people will make your next cabinet?” and he responded: “I won’t tell you.”
The president also refused to respond to the question on whether he compiled a ministerial list while in London. On the widespread kidnappings in the country, Buhari said he noticed Mohammed Adamu, acting inspector-general of police, had lost weight, saying it is a sign that he is working hard.
The presidential aircraft which conveyed the president from London landed at the presidential wing of Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, at 6:24pm.
Those at the airport to welcome the president were Abba Kyari, his chief of staff; Muhammed Bello, minister of the federal capital territory (FCT); Tukur Buratai, chief of army staff; Ibrahim Magu, acting chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), and some presidential aides.
