President Muhammadu Buhari has finally
returned to Nigeria after spending about 50
days in London on medical vacation.
The aircraft that conveyed the president to
Nigeria landed at the Air Force Base in Kaduna
at 7.40am and was received by the Deputy
Governor of the State, Barnabas Bala Bantex.
He was subsequently flown to Abuja by a
Buhari left Nigeria in January for London to
“undergo routine medical check-ups” during a
short holiday and was expected to resume
work on February 6. But his return was
postponed on the advice of his doctors, his
media aides said.
His January visit to London would make it the
second time in less than a year he has gone
there for medical treatment.
He visited London in June 2016 for treatment
to what the presidency described as a
persistent inner ear infection, which caused
him to pull out of several scheduled
engagements. But his latest visit, however, has
been dogged by the rumours of his death.
