The source who doesn’t want his name mentioned in print told NewsWireNGR in a telephone interview that the Presidential candidate of the APC has been ill in addition to the stress of his ongoing campaign.. “We will issue a statement to that effect and tell Nigerians to ask the so called “Progressives” why they haven’t been able to come out with the truth about Buhari’s failing health” the anonymous source said.
According to Shehu however, Buhari will in the course of his visit, hold meetings with key members of the British political establishment and interact with some global institutions with stakeholder interest in the affairs of Nigeria.
“Buhari would hopefully give a talk at the prestigious foreign policy hub, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatam House in London,” he said.
