•President Buhari.

President Muhammad made a public apology to Nigeria’s 36 state governors for barring them from visiting him while he was on his medical vacation in London that stretched to almost two months.

The President, who returned last week after his 50-day long vacation, disclosed in a tweet that he made the apology earlier today during the National Economic Council (NEC) meeting held in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

“I also apologised to the Governors for barring visits while I was away – I didn’t want Government to move to London; I wanted it to remain in Abuja,” he tweeted.

Buhari revealed that he barred the state governors from visiting him in London because he didn’t want the Nigerian Government to move to London.

Buhari resumed duties on Monday, March 13, taking over from Vice President Yemi Osibanjo, who had been in charge throughout the President’s health vacation in London.
