Fresh reports reaching Us has it that President Muhammadu Buhari departed Nigeria for London Sunday night for follow-up medical consultation with his doctors.

No duration has been given for the medical vacation.


Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, gave notice of the trip on his twitter handle last night at about 8.25 p.m., saying “PMB travels tonight for medical follow-up. Length of stay to be determined by London doctors

 The president had planned to leave Sunday afternoon, but decided to tarry a bit, due to the arrival of 82 Chibok girls who arrived Abuja earlier in the day.



“The President assured Nigerians that there is no cause for worry”, said Femi Adesina, the media and publicity adviser “He is very grateful for the prayers and good wishes of the people, and hopes they would continue to pray for the peace and unity of the nation.

“The length of the President’s stay in London will be determined by the doctors. “Government will continue to function normally under the able leadership of the Vice President.

 “President Buhari has transmitted letters about the trip to the Senate and the House of Representatives, in compliance with Section 145 (1) of the 1999 Constitution”. The President had travelled in January for a similar check and returned on 10 March.

The health of the President has continued to generate controversy, since he returned from the last medical vacation, following his failure to attend the last three meetings of the Federal Executive Council, FEC. Also, the President has not left the Presidential Villa since his return from his last medical vacation.
