President Muhammadu Buhari will on Tuesday (today) embark on a medical trip to London.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, disclosed this in a statement titled “President Buhari billed for routine  check-up in London.”

Adesina said Buhari was expected back in the country in the second week of April after what he called “a routine check-up.”

The statement read, “President Muhammadu Buhari proceeds to London, the United Kingdom, Tuesday March 30, 2021, for a routine check-up.

“The President meets with security chiefs first in the morning, after which he embarks on the journey.

“He is due back in the country during the second week of April, 2021.”

Buhari is embarking on the medical trip at a time members of the NARD declared their intention to commence a strike on April 1.

Buhari has spent at least 200 non-consecutive days in the UK for medical reasons since he became President in 2015.

His longest stay in the UK was in 2017 when he spent 51 days from January 19 to March 10; and 104 days from May 8, 2017 to August 19, 2017.

Buhari admitted at the time that he had never been so ill in his life despite denials by his aides and the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, that nothing was wrong with the President.
