Buhari returned to the country on Friday morning after a medical vacation in the UK.
“I deliberately came back towards the weekend so that the vice-president will continue and I will continue to rest. Thank you very much,” he said.
Shortly after his arrival, he met with top government officials at the first lady conference room of the presidential villa in Abuja.
Abba Kyari, chief of staff to the president; Babagana Monguno, national security adviser; Lawal Daura, director-general of the Department of State Services (DSS) and Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman; were among those who attended the meeting.
Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano state, and Abdulaziz Yari, his Zamfara state counterpart, also attended.
TheCable reports that Buhari expressed gratitude to all those who prayed for him during his time in London, and asked for more prayers.
He said he was feeling better, but still needed to rest.
He retired into his residence at the end of the meeting.
