President Buhari Arrives Back From London Medical Trip

President Buhari Arrives Back From London Medical Trip

Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday returned home after spending a few days in London to see his doctors for medical check-up.

Unconfirmed reports said he collapsed in Washington DC after his meeting with President Donald Trump at the White House on April 30.

Shehu had insisted last week that medical reasons were not behind the stopover.

His Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, had said Buhari was schedule to return on Saturday but the Nigerian leader came back a day earlier.

That tells you that there is nothing really to worry about as we said from the beginning but then this is politics and we use this opportunity to put the opponent on notice are you ready for 2019 President Buhari I ready to go.

"He's not the only one", he said.

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had previously claimed that Buhari was being treated for prostate cancer and as such is unfit to rule Nigeria.

Meanwhile, the President is expected to be in Jigawa State for a two day official visit on Monday and Tuesday next week.

He quoted Buhari during his electioneering as saying that fighting corruption was fundamental to restoring the moral health of the nation and freeing the country's enormous resources for urgent socio-economic development.

Buhari himself acknowledged that he was very ill after his return from his first medical stint on March 10, 2017, telling his cabinet members that "I couldn't recall being so sick since I was a young man".
