President Buhari is back to Nigeria after medical treatment

By on June 20, 2016

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari arrived back in the capital Abuja on Sundayafter a nearly two-week stay in Britain where he had treatment for an ear infection and a holiday.

“I am ok. I am better. You can see me inspecting the guards of honour. Now you can do the assessment yourself,” Buhari told reporters at the airport.

The 73-year-old flew to London on June 6 to see an ear, nose and throat specialist after two doctors in Nigeria recommended further evaluation “as a precaution”, his team said.

The People’s Democratic Party, Nigeria’s main opposition, said on its Twitter feed on Sunday that Buhari was “critically ill” and he had returned to Abuja to continue treatment, without giving a source for the information.

Buhari left Nigeria days after cancelling a high-profile trip to the restive Niger Delta region at the last minute.
