President Buhari Heads To UK For Medical Check-Up

President Muhammadu Buhari will on Tuesday travel to London, UK, for a medical check-up.

Femi Adesina, special adviser to the president on media and publicity, said the trip is strictly “routine”.

In a statement released on Monday, Adesina said the president will first meet with the security chiefs in the morning.

After his sit-down with the service chiefs, the president will then embark on his trip.

“President Muhammadu Buhari proceeds to London, the United Kingdom, Tuesday March 30, 2021, for a routine medical check-up,” Adesina said in the statement.

“The President meets with Security Chiefs first in the morning, after which he embarks on the journey.”

Buhari is expected back in the country in the second week of April.

The president has embarked on several trips to the UK to seek medical care since he assumed office.

In 2017, the president spent over 150 days in the UK, treating an undisclosed ailment.

Buhari also returned to the UK for four days in May 2018 to see his doctor.

Aisha Buhari, wife of the president, had in November 2020 said there was an urgent need to develop the health sector in order to reduce medical tourism.


She made the comment after returning to the country from Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), where she had gone for medical treatment.
