    Buhari returns after 15-day UK medical sojourn

    The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Thursday returned to Nigeria from London.

    Recall that Buhari travelled to London, United Kingdom on March 30 for “routine medical check-up.”

    Adesina had announced that the President would return to the country in the second week of April.

    The presidential jet that conveyed Buhari and some of his close aides landed at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja around 4.45pm.

    The Chief of Staff to the President, Prof Ibrahim Gambari, led other top government officials to receive him at the airport.

    Others who joined Gambari to receive the President at the airport were the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Muhammed Bello; the National Security Adviser Maj.-Gen. Babagana Monguno (retd.).

    Others were the service chiefs, the acting Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba; the Director-General, National Intelligence Agency, Ahmed Rufa’i; the Director-General of the Department of State Services, Yusuf Bichi; and other presidential aides.

    Earlier in the day, armed soldiers attached to the Brigade of Guards and armed policemen on “route lining” duties were seen in strategic locations on the road from the airport to the Presidential Villa.

    The arrangement is usual whenever there is presidential movement.

    While in London, some Nigerians protested in front of the Abuja House, asking the President to return to Nigeria and fix the various problems facing the country.

    The protest was spearheaded Reno Omokri, a former aide of former President Goodluck Jonathan with #HarassBuhariOutofLondon.

    Shortly after Buhari arrived Nigeria, Omokri posted the following message on his social media platforms, “Dear General @MBuhari, welcome back to Nigeria. I am sure after the surprise package we arranged for you in London, you will think twice before returning.

    “Now you know what my people and I are capable of, please focus on building hospitals for yourself and the masses.

    “Nigeria needs a Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, not a Traveler-in-Chief of Medical Tourism.

    “Stay in Nigeria. Build hospitals. Because if you return to London, God sparing my life, I will also return to torment you!”
