Buhari travels to UK for medical reasons

    President Muhammadu Buhari will on Tuesday undertake a four-day medical trip to the United Kingdom, his spokesperson said.

    A statement from his spokesperson, Garba Shehu, on Monday said, “In the course of the technical stop-over for aircraft maintenance in London on his way back from Washington last week, the president had a meeting with his doctor.”

    Mr Shehu said the doctor requested “the president to return for a meeting which he agreed to do.”

    “President Buhari will return on Saturday, May 12th,” he said.

    He also said on his return, the president’s two-day State Visit to Jigawa, which was postponed because of the All Progressives Congress, ward congresses, will now take place on Monday and Tuesday next week.
