The Presidency has tendered an explanation as President Muhammadu Buhari is yet to arrive Nigeria three days after leaving the US.
President Muhammadu Buhari is yet to arrive Nigeria three days after leaving Washington where he met with President Donald Trump. Buhari left US on Monday after the visit.
Reacting to questions why the President is yet to arrive Nigeria after three days of leaving US, the Presidency attributed his presence in the British capital to what it called “technical stopover.”
Speaking in a telephone conversation with Punch today, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said “They had a technical stopover in London. I am sure if you keep your ears to the ground, you will hear of his arrival soon.”
Buhari, who travelled to the United States for a meeting with President Donald Trump, had left Washington, D.C. on Tuesday after the Monday meeting.
The presidential spokesman did not give details of the “technical stopover” but insisted it’s not something to worry about.
Following his delayed return, it has been learnt that Buhari’s scheduled trip to his hometown, Daura in Katsina State might have been cancelled.
The President has his doctors who he has been consulting for years based in London. Buhari, in 2017, spent months in the British capital attending to his health. He had, on arrival, after one of such medical trips, said he had never been that sick in his life
