Buhari to return to UK for check up –Presidency
The Presidency on Thursday debunked the report that President Muhammadu Buhari would be flying in doctors from the United Kingdom rather than return to the country to keep an appointment with his doctors.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, who made this known in an interview with journalists stressed that Buhari has not changed his plan to return to his doctors in London for check-up.
The presidential spokesman however did not specify when Buhari would return to London.
He said: “It is false news (that Buhari is no longer going to London). We are not aware of the reported advance movements.
“The last time the President spoke about this, he said he would return to his doctors after some time. We are not aware that this has changed.”
It would be recalled that Buhari had shortly after he returned to the country after his 51-day medical vacation in London admitted that he he would return to London for further checkup.
The President who admitted that he was so sick that he had to undergo blood transfusion in London, said further: “I am feeling much better now, there may, however, be need to have further follow-ups within some weeks,” the President had said.
