However, the presidential aircraft carrying the president, his aides and some members of his entourage landed at the presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja, early Saturday morning.
NAN reports that the president’s decision to return home was informed by the fact that he was able to complete all his official engagements in time.
