President Muhammadu Buhari will no longer embark on his planned trip to London for medical check up, the presidency has announced.

Buhari was scheduled to depart the country on Friday for the English capital on compassionate grounds.

But, Buhari’s spokesman, Femi Adesina, in a statement on Friday afternoon, announced the postponement of the trip.

According to Adesina, a new date will be announced soon.

A terse statement by Adesina reads: “The medical follow-up visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to the United Kingdom earlier scheduled for today, Friday, June 25, 2021, has been postponed”

Recall that Buhari had on March 30 2021, embarked on similar medical sojourn to London for medical reasons.

Buhari’s stay in London was relatively unpleasant and humiliating as the former presidential aide and some other Nigerians in UK stormed his residence to demand his return to the country.
