President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived Nigeria on Thursday after a two week medical trip in London.
Recall that the president had left the country on March 30th for a routine medical checkup according to his special adviser on Media and publicity, Femi Adesina.
The Nigerian Airforce plane carrying Mr. Buhari landed at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja at around 5:30pm Nigerian time.
Dozens of state officials were at the airport to receive the president.
The Personal Assistant to the President Bashir Ahmad, confirmed his arrival via his Twitter handle.
‘President Muhammadu Buhari has returned to Abuja this afternoon, after a private trip to London, the United Kingdom,” he tweeted
President Buhari has made repeated trips to London since he came to office in 2015 and was re-elected in 2019, though the nature of his ailment has never been made public.
When he left at the end of last month, the presidency said the president would be away for two weeks.
Buhari’s frequent visits for medical treatment have sparked criticism about the government’s transparency over his illness.
