President Muhammadu Buhari has returned to the country from the United Kingdom, where he went for a routine medical check-up for two weeks.
President Buhari landed at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, via the Presidential Jet from London, the UK capital, at about 5pm on Thursday.
The president had left for the UK on 30 March and was expected to be back in the country in the second week of April, according to a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in March.
Buhari has been criticised for his medical trips abroad as he has embarked on various medical trips since 2015.
He was widely criticised by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), which described the move as an indictment of his government’s purported failure to improve the country’s healthcare services.
The trip to London was his first medical trip in over a year as he had been unable to travel due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
