Buhari's extended absence for an undisclosed ailment, his second this year, left many in Nigeria questioning whether he was well enough to run the country.

A senior advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Femi Falana has the said the unfair treatment of the "resume of resign" protesters by the police should worry President Muhammadu Buhari.
"It (calls for president's resignation) is an act which is maliciously and mischievously being promoted by some unpatriotic and unguided people who do not even appreciate the collective responsibility of preserving the integrity of the Nigerian state as a project and are sadly patronized by the Nigerian media", he said.
Meanwhile Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari has said he feels ready to return home from medical leave in Britain, and is awaiting his doctor's permission, a presidency statement said on Saturday. In the photographs released yesterday, the president was seen smiling as he looked at a get-well-soon card presented to him by his media aides. "I have now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed".
On how he felt hearing different conjectures about his health, the president said he followed events at home closely, lauding Nigerian television stations and the media for keeping him informed.
The president, while also thanking well-wishers from within Nigeria and across Africa, said: "What we did in The Gambia early this year fetched us a lot of goodwill on the African continent".
