President-Elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is expected back to Nigeria today after spending one month overseas since his emergence.
Tinubu left Nigeria on March 21 for France where his team said he needed to take some rest and plan for his inauguration.
The Director of Media and Publicity, Tinubu Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga, who disclosed this on his Twitter handle Monday, said the president-elect would touch down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja.
According to him, Tinubu will be escorted from the airport by a carnival-like motorcade to the Defence House.
A statement by the APC presidential campaign council had in March noted that Tinubu travelled to France to rest and plan his transition programme after a very exhaustive campaign and election season.
“The president-elect had left the country through the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja. The president-elect decided to take a break after the hectic campaign and election season to rest in Paris and London, preparatory to going to Saudi Arabia for Umrah (Lesser Hajj) and the Ramadan Fasting.”
