Buhari returns home after medical trip to UK

By News Desk

President Muhammadu Buhari has returned to the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja from London, United Kingdom (UK) after a routine two-week medical check-up.

Buhari returned to the country amid a crisis between the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) over the payment of half salary and a hike in prices of fuel, which had affected prices of goods and services across Nigeria.

Buhari arrived in the country through the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, on Sunday, ending two weeks of routine medical checkups abroad.

Buhari left for London on October 31, 2022, after attending a security council meeting and a Conference and Retreat for Senior Police Officers in Owerri, Imo State.

According to a tweet by the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the president was expected back in the country in the “second week of November.”

The trip was one of the several medical trips the President had embarked on since assuming office in 2015; spending at least 212 days abroad.

On February 5, 2016, eight months after being sworn in, the President took his first medical trip to London, the United Kingdom, spending six days between February 5 and 10.
