President Muhammadu Buhari is expected back in Nigeria today, barring any unforeseen circumstances.
Sources within the presidency say the president is likely to be in the State Capital just before nightfall.
The President departed Nigeria for the United Kingdom on July 26 to participate in the Global Education Summit on Financing Global Partnership for Education (GPE) 2021-2025.
His special media aide, Femi Adesina had issued a statement suggesting that after the event, President Buhari would spend a few days in the United Kingdom for an earlier scheduled medical check-up.
In the weeks he spent in the UK, the president met and played host to various dignitaries including the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson who assured that the UK is available to assist Nigeria in its war against terrorism.
One other very significant meeting was that of Buhari and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu in London.
Its import is occasioned by the recent crisis rocking the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), where some aggrieved members are seeking to oust the caretaker national leadership of the APC, led by Mai Mala Buni.
President Buhari had reportedly asked Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to intervene in the matter.
Also prior to their brief get-together, Tinubu had been away from the country for some undisclosed reasons, stirring speculations about his health.
