President Muhammadu Buhari will today depart Abuja for London for a scheduled medical follow-up.
Buhari, according to a statement by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, is due back in Nigeria during the second week of July 2021.
The president had, on March 30, 2021, left Nigeria for his first medical trip in over a year and returned home on April 15.
Protesters stormed the Abuja House, Nigeria’s Diplomatic Mission in London, during Buhari’s visit at that time.
Critics had said the president was medically unfit to lead the country; the allegation he and his handlers had dispelled.
Meanwhile, former Prersidential spokesman, Mr Reno Mokri in his tweet has threatened to resume protests against Buhar in London if he remains there till July 10.
The tweet reads, “Dear general buhari, your announced planned trip to London next week to see doctors is one trip too many. You refused to buil hospitals for Nigerians, and if by July 10, you are still in London, prepare for the mother of all #harassBuhariOutofLondon”.
