After spending over one month in France, Nigeria President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu has arrived the country on Monday evening.

Upon touching down, the former Lagos State governor was welcome by party men and supporters at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja.

Tinubu was in company of his wife, Senator Remi Tinubu, and son, Seyi Tinubu.

Some of those who received at the airport included: Vice President-elect Kashim Shettima, House of Representatives Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila as well as Governors Simon Lalong (Plateau) and Abubakar Sani-Bello (Niger), former Borno State Governor Ali Modu Sheriff.

Also at the airport were former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, APC Deputy National Chairman, North, Senator Abubakar Kyari, Deputy National Chairman, South, Barrister Emma Enekwu, and National Woman Leader, Dr. Betta Edu.

Others are Senators Barau Jibril, Adeola Olamilekan Yayi, Opeyemi Bamidele, Dayo Adeyeye, Sabi Abdullahi and Adelere Oriolowo as well as Secretary of the recently-dissolved Presidential Campaign Council, Hon. James Faleke, Hon. Babajimi Benson and Mr. Bayo Onanuga, Director of media and publicity in the just dissolved Presidential Campaign Council.

Addressing the cheering crowd who accompanied him home, the President-elect said: “I’m happy to be back. I have rested, I’m refreshed and I’m ready for the task ahead.

“Forget about what the rumour mill may have told you. I’m strong, very strong.”

While responding to the question about his plans for Nigeria, he said consultations and plannings are ongoing to ensure he constitute a competent cabinet so as to “hit the ground running once he assumes office on May 29.”
