President Buhari extends Health stay in the UK

President Muhammadu Buhari is no longer returning to Abuja after 10 days of medical vacation in the United Kingdom.
The Nigerian President is to prolong his stay in London pending the result
of health tests, his spokesman said this on Sunday in a statement.
This was made public in a statement signed by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina. A new return date has not been announced.

The President had planned to return to Abuja Sunday evening, but was advised to complete the test cycle before returning, Adesina said.
“The notice has since been dispatched to the Senate President, and Speaker, House of Representatives,” he added.

“Mr. President expresses his sincere gratitude to Nigerians for their concern, prayers and kind wishes.”

Meanwhile, Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Shehu Garba, has revealed that the elongation of President Buhari’s vacation in the UK is not an indication that he is seriously ill.

In an interview with Premium Times, Garba stated that Buhari is not very ill and also not hospitalized.

Shehu said: “I just spoke to the president’s personal doctor, and he told me President Buhari is not in any serious condition as to worry about. He is not in hospital. He is in the residence at the Nigerian High Commission.
He and his delegation were ready to come home today but for the delayed test result which came in today which necessitated that he delays his return. There is nothing to worry about as far as his condition is concerned.”

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has been deputising for Buhari in his absence.
