Nigerian President Back in Country
According to the BBC, the 58-year-old's surprise return from Saudi Arabia comes two weeks after Vice-President Goodluck Jonathan took over as Acting President. Nigerian President Yar'Adua's condition is not being revealed, although an ambulance met his plane in Abuja (the capital city) when he arrived.
"President Yar'Adua wishes to reassure all Nigerians that on account of their unceasing prayers and by the special grace of God, his health has greatly improved," the president's spokesman, Olusegun Adeniyi, said in a statement. "However, while the president completes his recuperation, Vice-President Jonathan will continue to oversee the affairs of state," it added.
Dr. Chris has asked us all to keep Nigeria in our prayers.
