Meanwhile, the Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina has stated that Nigerians should not compare his boss' present absence to that of Late President Umaru Yar'Adua.
During an appearance on Channels TV, Adesina said, “You can't compare the Yar'Adua scenario/saga with what is happening now".
A source close to the president told leadership yesterday that except there would be any last minute change, all is set for President Buhari's return.
“Barring any last minute change, we are expecting the president back this weekend, probably on Saturday.”
