Following speculations that President Muhammadu Buhari will no more be going to London for meducal checkups, the presidency has reacted.
President Muhammadu Buhari
The Presidency on Thursday said President Muhammadu Buhari has not changed his plan to return to his doctors in London, United Kingdom for follow-ups.
The Punch reports that the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said this in an interview with journalists.
Shehu said it was not true that Buhari had decided to bring his doctors to Nigeria instead of returning to London.
The presidential spokesman however did not specify when Buhari will return to London.
He said, “It is false news (that Buhari is no longer going to London). We are not aware of the reported advance movements.
“The last time the President spoke about this, he said he would return to his doctors after some time.
“We are not aware that this has changed.”
Buhari had shortly after he returned to the country after his 49-day medical vacation in London admitted that he had never been that sick in his life.
He then gave an indication that he will return to London for further checkup.
“I am feeling much better now, there may, however, be need to have further follow-ups within some weeks,” the President had said.
