President Buhari Leaves Nigeria For Medical Checkup in U.K.

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari travels to London for a routine medical checkup, the presidency said.

Buhari, 78, embarks on the journey after meeting the nation’s security chiefs early Tuesday. The trip will last until the second week of April.

His spokesman Femi Adesina said in a statement that Mr. Buhari “proceeds to London, the United Kingdom, Tuesday March 30, 2021, for a routine medical check-up.”

Mr. Buhari will return home in the second week of April, the statement further noted.

Traveling to the UK for medical check-up is something president Buhari does often since coming into office.
