The senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Garba Shehu has said that President Muhammadu Buhari will return to London for his medical check-ups.
He was reacting to reports that Buhari had plans to fly his doctors into Nigeria.
Shehu told reporters in Abuja that the president will return to the country he spent his 49 days medical vacation.
“The last time the president spoke about this (medical trip), he said he would return to his doctors after some time,” Shehu said.
“We are not aware that this has changed. We are not aware of the reported advance movements.”
However, Shehu did not specify when Buhari will continue his medical vacation.
Speaking with members of his cabinet shortly after returning to the country on March 10, Buhari had revealed that he would be returning to Britain for follow-ups.
“There may be need to have further follow-ups within some weeks,” he had said.
