The Nigerian office of the Presidency has released information of the arrival of President Muhammadu Buhari at the Abuja International Airport on Thursday afternoon.
In a short press statement made available to 9News Nigeria, the Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to the President said “President Buhari returns to Abuja after Private trip to London on 15th April 2021,” and released some of the photos taken of his arrival.
After over two weeks of stay in London, United Kingdom, the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), arrived at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, on Thursday evening.
The President had travelled to London on March 30 for a “routine medical check-up”, according to presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina.
However, Buhari’s “short rest” at the Abuja House in London has been marred with the #HarassBuhariOutOfLondon protest organised by Reno Omokri, an ex-aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan. A counter-protest or a solidarity protest was soon organised in support of the Nigerian president in what could be described as absurd drama.
Buhari has been criticised for his medical trips abroad despite the huge amount allocated to the Aso Rock clinic annually.
