Celebrations have gone at the presidential villa yesterday and thanksgiving service held at the Aso Villa Chapel to mark President Muhammadu Buhari’s return from medical vacation.
The president had left the country on May 7, 2017 for further medical checks in the United Kingdom after transmitting a letter to the National Assembly, informing them that his deputy, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, will act as president in his absence.
Celebrating the arrival of the president yesterday, Aso Villa Chapel held a special service in which songs of praises were rendered in local languages, with Osinbajo among the worshippers.
Osinbajo who had been in charge of governance since Buhari left the shores of the country was one of the many dignitaries who received the president on arrival at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, on Saturday.
The Chapel’s Administrator, Rev Isaac Ambi, who presided over the service, said the church was happy that the president returned safely.
In his sermon titled, ‘What is New for a Christian’, the church Administrator, Rev Ambi, who read from John 15:1-11 and Psalm 23, urged everyone who has accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour to continue to live their lives according to the dictate of Christ.
“A Christian life is a matter of relationship; knowing the rules and the regulations. So what is your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ? We are supposed to have a kind of relationship that draws our strength from Jesus Christ”, he remarked.
In a related development, Northern Nigeria branch of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) yesterday welcomed back President Muhammadu Buhari to the country, saying the president’s healing was a divine touch from God.
According to a statement credited to the association; “Nigerians are still suffering and the progress made so far is not enough to reduce the sufferings. We will continue to pray to God to give Mr. President more strength and we are appealing to members of his team to work and stop the talk because Good work will always speak for itself”.
The Yhame! team wishes the Nigerian president, excellent health and good governance
