Nigeria cancels first cabinet meeting after Buhari's return

LAGOS, Aug 23 (Reuters) - The first meeting of Nigeria’s cabinet since the return of President Muhammadu Buhari from three months of medical leave in Britain has been cancelled, his spokesman said on Wednesday without explaining why.

Buhari returned to Nigeria on Saturday after travelling to Britain on May 7 for an unspecified illness, and had written lawmakers on Monday to confirm he had returned and was resuming his duties. (Reporting by Alexis Akwagyiram; editing by Mark Heinrich)
