He was reported to have arrived Minna International Airport on Saturday evening at 6.45PM.

The retired General was said to have left the country for medical vacation in Europe on 18 December, 2016.

Babangida, alighting from the aircraft, expressed gratitude for prayers and goodwill messages during his vacation.

“I am feeling stronger and better now. I must thank Nigerians immensely for the prayers and concerns over my health.

“I must use this opportunity to also call on Nigerians to continue to pray for the leaders and the country to move forward in positive direction.

“We should remain united and work collectively towards the progress of our nation by thinking positively about the leaders and providing constructive criticisms and solutions to any challenge we may face.”

When asked about the country’s economic challenges, Babangida said it is not peculiar to Nigeria.

“I am aware that other countries face different political, social and economic challenges. I believe the current government is working assiduously towards addressing some of the issues.

“We need to support all arms and tiers of government in their efforts to ensure economic recovery and political stability,” he concluded
