President Muhammadu Buhari is to leave for London, United Kingdom on Monday for routine medical check-up.
The Presidency has confirmed the exclusive report that President Muhammadu Buhari who recently travelled to Seoul, South Korea on a five-day official visit will also be going to London, UK where he will be seeing his doctors.
The media earlier reported that Buhari would visit Royal Brompton Hospital situated at Sydney St, London SW3 6NP between November 1 and 2, 2022 to see his doctors.
A source had told our correspondent “President Muhammadu Buhari is scheduled to depart Abuja for Seoul, South Korea on a 5-day official visit to the Asian country.
“The President who wanted to visit Doha, Qatar last month but was snubbed by the Qatari leader is poised to go on a merry-go-round around the world between now and his eagerly awaited exit from power in about 7 months.
“From Seoul, Buhari will proceed to London where he is scheduled to undergo a medical procedure at the Royal Brompton Hospital situated at Sydney St, London SW3 6NP, between November 1 and 2, 2022.”
Confirming the report on Monday, the Special Assistant to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, on his Twitter account said the President would be back in Nigeria in the second week of November.
Adesina said, “President Buhari leaves for London October 31, 2022, for routine medical checkup. He returns to the country 2nd week of November, 2022.”
According to the statement by the Presidency: Buhari will leave for London after attending the Conference and Retreat for Senior Police Officers in Owerri, the Imo State capital.
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in a statement on Monday, said Buhari will return to the country in the second week of November, 2022.
This is not the first time the President will travel to London for medical check-up in 2022. Buhari was in the United Kingdom in March and in July for medical purpose.
This is despite the rising tension and fear in the country, especially in Abuja over the terror alert by the US, UK and Canadian commissions.
