“After a thorough evaluation of the President’s symptoms, medically referred to as acute abdomen, the doctors concluded that no surgical intervention was required,” Mr. Abati said.
The spokesperson said Mr. Jonathan will return to Abuja on Sunday evening at about 8:00 p.m. and will resume work at the Presidential Villa on Monday.
He said the President seized the “opportunity to thank all Nigerians once again for their sympathy, support and prayers for his quick recovery following the announcement of his indisposition”.
