Medical Trip: Buhari returns to Nigeria from Kenya; Presidency reveals date for UK travel

President Muhammadu Buhari has returned to Nigeria from Kenya after a special session to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations Environmental Programme ([email protected] 50), scheduled for March 3 and 4, 2022 in Nairobi, Kenya.

His return however was surprising to some Nigerians considering the earlier statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media & Publicity, Femi Adesina, which noted that President Muhammadu Buhari is set to proceed to London for routine medical checks that will last for a maximum of two weeks after an invitation by his Kenyan counterpart, President Uhuru Kenyatta.

However, disclosing the date for the President’s departure to Londo, the Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, said Buhari had to return to Abuja after an early completion of his task in Nairobi.

On whether the President had shelved his trip to London, Shehu said, “No, he hasn’t shelved his trip to London. The plan is still there. He finished his business in Kenya and made an early return. The trip to London is Sunday.”
