The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, arrived in Abuja, the capital city of Nigeria, on Thursday evening.
Tinubu has been away from the country for almost 12 days in the United Kingdom.
His long absence has led to rumours about his health.
However, his campaign spokesman, Festus Keyamo, confirmed his return in a Twitter post.
Keyamo posted a video of Tinubu alighting from a plane and wrote: “The Eagle has landed”.
