The president said this on Tuesday, February 21, 2017 saying the rest is deserved following the results from the series of medical tests he carried out in the United Kingdom where he is on vacation.
The president, who noted that he is staying longer than expected in the UK, reportedly stated this in a four-paragraph statement through his special adviser on media and publicity, Femi Adesina.
The Punch reports that the president thanked Nigerians for their prayers, good wishes and support adding that there was no cause to be troubled.
“The President is immensely grateful for the prayers, show of love and concern.
“During his normal annual checkup, tests showed he needed a longer period of rest, necessitating the President staying longer than originally planned,” he said.
