President-elect Bola Tinubu has declared his preparedness to take office on May 29 of this year.

Mr Tinubu, who had been abroad for more than a month, was greeted by a joyous crowd of supporters on Monday in Abuja.

Mr Tinubu stated that he returned strong and prepared to work.

“I am prepared for the task at hand.” I’ve rested; I’m refreshed, and I’m ready to tackle the task at hand. Forget what the gossip mill may have told you. “I’m strong; very strong,” Mr Tinubu said in a statement issued on Monday by his media aide Tunde Rahman.

The president-elect left Nigeria on March 21 for a vacation that many thought was a cover for him to obtain intense medical treatment for an undisclosed sickness. Mr Tinubu has always denied being sick and unfit to be president.

In terms of his goals for the country, he stated that he had been consulting and planning to assemble a solid team so that he could hit the ground running once he took office on May 29.

Mr Tinubu returned to Nigeria on a private jet with his wife, Oluremi, and son, Seyi.

Mr Tinubu was greeted by a large gathering of passionate allies and fans at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.

Among those who greeted Mr Tinubu at the airport were Vice-President-elect Kashim Shettima, House of Representatives Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila, and Governor Simon Lalong. Governor Abubakar Sani-Bello, ex-Governor Ali Modu Sheriff, and former EFCC Chairman Nuhu Ribadu were among the others.

Also at the airport were the deputy national chairman (North) of APC, Abubakar Kyari and his counterpart in the South, Emma Enekwu, APC national woman leader, Betta Edu, Bayo Onanuga, spokesman for the defunct APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), Barau Jibril, Adeola Yayi, Opeyemi Bamidele, Dayo Adeyeye, Sabi Abdullahi, Adelere Oriolowo, and secretary of the dissolved PCC, James Faleke.
