Officials in beneficiary states such as Plateau, however, say they are yet to receive the money, which was supposed to be taken from the Ecological Fund and disbursed through the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, to the affected states.

Maihaja, in a statement through NEMA's Head of Media and Public Relations, Sani Datti, said that the humanitarian team had been reinforced with another contingent headed by Air Commodore Paul Ohemu, Director, Search and Rescue.

"Once again, I assure you that this administration, which has made the security, economic well-being and prosperity of all Nigerians its priority, will not rest on its oars until we see the Nigeria of our dream".

Recalling his experience of working in various parts of the country as an army officer, Buhari noted that serving in some southern parts of the country like Lagos and Ibadan were very rich experiences, as he learnt more about the culture of the region. From the outset, I want to use this opportunity to thank all Nigerians who prayed for my recovery and have continued to extend their goodwill and support after my return to the country.

Earlier, the President joined his kinsmen in Daura, Katsina State to observe this year's Eid-el-Kabir in what his media aide, Shehu, described as a "phenomenon event".

"It must never be used as a tool of hatred and division", the President said.

While expressing happiness for the safe return of President Buhari, Abdusalami called for concerted prayers for both over their health.

Speaking with newsmen after the Eid prayers at the Minna praying ground yesterday, Gen Abdulsalami also urged Nigerians to intercede for the former military president, retired General Ibrahim Babaginda, who is now receiving treatment in Germany. "He will deliver on his promises".
