President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday, left Nigeria for a routine medical trip to London, United Kingdom.
Last month, his spokesperson, Femi Adesina, had said Buhari would visit his doctor in London for “routine medical checks that will last for a maximum of two weeks”.
Buhari was supposed to proceed to London from Kenya — where he participated at the 50th anniversary of the United Nations Environmental Programme — but touched down in Abuja abruptly.
The president’s return took many by surprise, given the earlier spelt-out details of his itinerary.
In spite of his unexpected return to the country, it had reported that the medical trip was not cancelled.
