President Muhammadu Buhari has returned from London after a routine medical check-up.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Buhari departed Abuja for the routine medical check-up in London on March 6.
The President had earlier wanted to embark on the medical trip from Nairobi, Kenya after attending the United Nations Environmental Programme at 50 in that country on March 5, but returned to Nigeria on March 4.
The President’s spokesman, Femi Adesina, had on March 1 in a statement said that from Kenya, Buhari would proceed to London for “routine medical checks that will last for a maximum of two weeks.”
However, the President returned to Abuja on Friday at about 1pm before embarking on the London trip on March 6.
While in London, the President was believed to have met with the Interim National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State.
Buhari, at the end of the London meeting with Buni, called on governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress to stop further utterances that could lead to disunity ahead of the National Convention slated for March 26, 2022.
A statement by Adesina on Wednesday in Abuja said the President made the call via a letter he personally signed and addressed to the Chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum and Governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu.
NAN reports that the presidential aircraft carrying the President landed at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja at about 7:09pm.
