Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has declared Monday, August 21, as a public holiday and thanksgiving day for the safe return of President Muhammadu Buhari from London.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Director-General, Media and Publicity to the governor, Mr Kingsley Fanwo.
According to the statement, the gesture is in line with the support and prayers of the Kogi people for the renaissance of the nation by the President.
Apart from using the holiday to thank God for the President’s return, the governor expects the people to pray for the President as he resumes and proceed to reposition the country.
President Muhammadu Buhari returned to Nigeria on Saturday, 103 days after he left the country for London to receive medical attention.
Meanwhile, only last week, the Kogi State Commissioner for Health, Saka Audu, said that the alleged unknown disease has been diagnosed to be gastroenteritis.
