President Muhammadu Buhari has returned to Abuja following an eight-day official visit to Saudi Arabia, where he also conducted the Umrah (Lesser Hajj).
Some security agencies, government officials, and presidential aides were said to have greeted Buhari at the Presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport in Abuja.
The Nigerian leader was discovered to have left Saudi Arabia via King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in the early hours of Wednesday.
Saudi government officials, traditional and spiritual leaders from Nigeria, and senior personnel from the Nigerian Embassy in the Kingdom were present at the airport to tell the president farewell.
When the president arrived at the Grand Mosque in Makkah from Madinah on Thursday morning, he successfully conducted Umrah procedures amid strict security.
Buhari, along with members of his entourage and certain traditional and religious leaders from the country’s six geopolitical zones, had been guided in the performance of the ceremonies by a team from the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Grand Mosque.
Remember that last week, on Tuesday and Wednesday, the President visited some historic religious sites in Madinah before traveling to Makkah for Umrah.
