JUST IN: Buhari Postpones Medical Trip To London
President Muhammadu Buhari has postponed his trip to London, United Kingdom indefinitely.
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, announced the postponement in a terse statement.
“The medical follow-up visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to United Kingdom earlier scheduled for today, Friday, June 25, 2021, has been postponed.
“A new date will be announced in due course,” the statement read.
Adesina had said in a Thursday statement that Buhari would leave Nigeria today and return “during the second week of July, 2021”.
Buhari is a frequent visitor to the UK for medical reasons.
He returned from the last medical trip in April.
However, the visits usually attract severe criticism due to the state of the health facilities in the country.
