Buhari Returns From UK After Medical Checkup

President Muhammadu Buhari is back in Nigeria after spending 13 days in the United Kingdom undergoing medical checks.

He left the shores of the country for London, United Kingdom, on Monday, October 31, 2022, for a routine emergency check-up. Presidential spokesman Femi Adesina disclosed this via his Twitter handle.

The President before leaving had presided over an emergency National Security Council meeting in the State House, Abuja, where he and his security chiefs had reviewed the security advisory issued by the United States government to its employees in Nigeria.

He had attended the opening ceremony of the conference and retreat organised for Senior police officers in Owerri, Imo State before jetting out.

The terse tweet by his spokesman had noted that the President was expected back in the second week of November.

Meanwhile, during the routine medical checks, the President seized the opportunity to pay a brief visit to the King of England, King Charles.

Both men had engaged in a heart-to-heart talk, where King Charles was reported to have jokingly asked Buhari if he had a residential building in the UK.

Now that he is back, Buhari is expected to flag off the All Progressive Congress Presidential Campaign activities in Jos, Plateau state on Tuesday.
