President Muhammadu Buhari has cancelled a planned medical trip to the UK and invited doctors to Nigeria instead. The 74-year-old head of state spent 51 days on medical leave in London earlier this year, amid fears he was too ill to continue to lead Nigeria.
Buhari returned home on 10 March, temporarily ending ill-health rumours. However, soon after, the presidency said he was planning to travel again in April for further medical tests.
But it is now believed Buhari’s doctors will travel to Nigeria on Friday (31 March). The president was advised against leaving Nigeria, given the current economic crisis affecting the country.
