The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, disclosed this in a statement titled “President Buhari billed for a routine check-up in London.”
Adesina said Buhari was expected back in the country in the second week of April after what he called “a routine check-up.”
The statement read, “President Muhammadu Buhari proceeds to London, the United Kingdom, Tuesday, March 30, 2021, for a routine check-up.
“The President meets with security chiefs first in the morning, after which he embarks on the journey.
“He is due back in the country during the second week of April 2021.”
Buhari is embarking on the medical trip at time members of the NARD declared their intention to commence a strike on April 1.
President Buhari spent at least 200 non-consecutive days in the UK for medical reasons since he became President in 2015.
His longest spell in the UK was in 2017 when he spent 51 days from January 19 to March 10; and 104 days from May 8, 2017, to August 19, 2017.
