President Muhammadu Buhari will tomorrow (Tuesday), proceed to London, United Kingdom for a routine medical check-up.
This was announced in a statement issued on Monday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina.
Before departing the country for the UK, President Buhari would meet with the nation’s security chiefs.
He is expected back in Nigeria during the second week of April 2021.
Our correspondent recalled that President Buhari had embarked on several medical trips between 2015 and 2019 and during one of his trips in 2017, he spent 103 days in London, which fuelled speculations that he had passed on.
In his absence at those periods, the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, took over the affairs of the country in acting capacity.
