President Muhammadu Buhari has safely returned to Abuja, Nigeria’s capital city, after spending six days in China on official visit.

The President touched down at the Presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on Thursday night, at about 21:30 GMT.

He was received at the airport by his Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari and other top government functionaries.

Soon after the usual airport formalities, President Buhari was then conveyed via a helicopter to the Presidential Villa, in the company of his wife, Aisha and some family members.

Meanwhile, the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu says the recent visit of President Buhari to China, was full of gains for Nigeria.

He stated this in an interview with Journalists at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja.

“Talking about what President Buhari is bringing home from China, it includes the commitment of the Chinese government to continue financing some of our infrastructural projects like the Mambila Hydro power project, railway projects and many more,” he said.

Shehu said when completed, the projects will further afford Nigerians the opportunity to reap more dividends of democracy.
