Shortly after his return, speaking to some governors, members of the Federal Executive Council, service chiefs and senior government officials at the State House, President Buhari said the world was fast changing, and more efforts must be made to equip the younger generation with relevant skills to compete in the global economy.

President Buhari noted that the government would continue to discourage Nigerians from self-medication, urging those with discomforts to ensure they get proper diagnosis and doctor’s prescription for drugs. He lauded the quality of treatment he got during his medical vacation.

Buhari also praises Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, that he was pleased with him for providing good leadership during his stay in London for medical attention.

The President confirmed that he had planned to take a vacation in January, 2017, after asking the Vice President to take a holiday in December, 2016.

While also pointed that the team spirit with the Vice President would be further strengthened, in tackling the myriad challenges in the economy.
