Journalists and reporters were barred from asking President Muhammadu Buhari questions, as he returned to Nigeria after 49 days in the United Kingdom.

Buhari touched down at the Air Force Base along Mando Road in Kaduna at about 7:47am on Friday.

Only cameramen and photojournalists were allowed to take photographs and video recordings, before the President boarded a chopper which conveyed him to Abuja.

Femi Adesina, Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, had released a statement on the return of the president but there was no details on when he would arrive.

Reporters had initially gone to the Kaduna International Airport before converging on the base.

When he arrived at Aso Rock, Buhari held a closed-door meeting with Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo and other top government officials. The meeting was held at the First Lady Conference Room.

Journalists were not allowed to cover the meeting, which was supposed to be open to the press.

But Buhari’s Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmaad, quoted the president as saying “I am feeling much better”.

Ahmaad wrote on Twitter: “I am pleased I am back, I am feeling much better now. – President Buhari.”

At the meeting, Buhari promised to re-dedicate himself to the service of Nigeria.

Buhari then retired into his official residence inside the Presidential Villa.
