Buhari departs Abuja for two-week medical vacation in London

PRESIDENT Buhari this morning departed Abuja for a two-week medical vacation in London.

The president was expected to embark on the journey from Nairobi Kenya on Thursday after attending the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) 50th anniversary.

Amid the controversy that he had canceled the medical trip, Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, said his principal only made an early return after his Kenya trip.

“He hasn’t shelved his trip to London. The plan is still there. He finished his business in Kenya and made an early return. The trip to London is Sunday,” Shehu had explained.

According to Sunday Aghaeze, the president’s photographer, Buhari left for London on Sunday morning.

Femi Adesina, the president’s media adviser said last week that Buhari’s routine medical checks will last for a maximum of two weeks.
