Breaking: Buhari embarks on four-day medical trip to UK
President Muhammadu Buhari will on Tuesday embark on a four-day trip to the United Kingdom to see his doctor.
Senior Special Assistant to President on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu, announced this in a statement on Monday in Abuja.
The presidential aide disclosed that in the course of the technical stop-over for aircraft maintenance in London on his way back from Washington last week, President Buhari had a meeting with his doctor.
According to him, the doctor requested the President to return for a meeting which he agreed to do.
The President is expected to return to the country on Saturday, May 12.
Shehu also revealed that upon his return, President Buhari’s two-day State Visit to Jigawa would take place on Monday and Tuesday next week.
He said the visit was postponed earlier because of the ward congresses of the All Progressives Congress (APC) which held over the weekend.
