Whatapp News

ABUJA – The Presidency said Thursday that President Muhammadu Buhari has not shelved his plans of seeing his doctors in London for further check-ups.

Online medium, Sahara Reporters, citing an unnamed Presidency source, had said that Buhari had chosen to bring his doctors to Nigeria instead of jetting out to see them in London. It stated that the president has recalled an advance party which has already left the country.

“It is false news. We are not aware of the reported advance movements,” said presidential spokesman Garba Shehu.

“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.”

On the day he returned to Nigeria following his 49-day medical vacation, Buhari had mentioned during a meeting with members of his cabinet that there would be a need for him to still visit his doctors in the United Kingdom.

He said, “I am feeling much better now, there may, however, be a need to have further follow-ups within some weeks.”

At the meeting, he did not give any indication of what illness he was suffering from but said “I have received, I think, the best of treatment I could receive.

“I couldn’t recall being so sick since I was a young man,” he added, referring to “blood transfusions, going to the laboratories and so on and so forth”.
