President Muhammadu Buhari has written a letter to the National Assembly, informing it that he has resumed as President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.

Malam Garba Shehu, the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity confirmed this development in a statement in Abuja on Saturday.

According to the presidential aide, the transmission of the letter to the two arms of the legislature, the Senate and the House of Representatives, followed the completion of his 10-day working leave.

In the letter titled, “RESUMPTION OF OFFICE” personally signed by him, on Saturday, President Buhari said, “In compliance with Section 145 of the 1999 constitution (as amended), I write to intimate the Senate (House of Representatives) that I have resumed my functions as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria with effect from today, Saturday 18th August 2018, after my vacation.

“Please accept, Distinguished Senate President, (Hon.Speaker, House of Representatives) the assurances of my highest consideration.”

Meanwhile, Buhari has assured Nigerians that ‘he would not spare anyone found guilty of any corrupt practice or sabotaging the nation’s economy.’

The President gave the assurance when he spoke on arrival from London on Saturday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, after his 10 working day vacation.
