The senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, Garba Shehu has denied reports that the president has cancelled a planned medical visit to the UK.

Speaking to BBC, Shehu on Thursday, March 30, said President Muhammadu Buhari has not changed his plan to return to his doctors in London, United Kingdom for follow-ups.

Buhari decided to bring his doctors to Nigeria. However the spokesman did not specify when the president will return to London.

He said: “It is false news (that Buhari is no longer going to London). We are not aware of the reported advance movements.

“The last time the President spoke about this, he said he would return to his doctors after some time. We are not aware that this has changed.

The president's trip to the UK had generated speculation that he was seriously ill with some even saying he had passed away although this was refuted several times by his media aides.

Presient Buhari returned from London on Friday, March 10 after 51-day medical vacation in the UK for an undisclosed illness.

In a related development, Meanwhile, the minister of information, Lai Mohammed said that the federal government's decision to release the medical expenses of President Buhari was on the basis of national security.

He said: “This matter (the President's medical bill) has come several times and our position on the matter is quite straight forward.

Hurray!! The dollar will fall again and naira will strengthen. Nigeria is a wonderful place to be. You're never short of the comical, the circus and the utterly absurd. Imagine this: One sleeping president and one acting president? Please Buhari take your remaining yrs in UK. We are fine whenever you are outside. Your fulani Herdsmen will not be happy with this news meaning that they will seize fire now to resume their killings when you are back. Nigerians deserve the dribbling from the Presidency. In 2015, self-serving Asiwaju masterminded a coalition of strange bedfellows, went to Daura and invited an aged erstwhile military dictator to become presidential candidate. Nigerians sidelined the tens of thousands of younger, better educated and more qualified presidential material for Asiwaju's choice. The rest is History. But the present is that Nigeria is fast becoming a Banana Republic since May 29, 2015. The president was not supposed to come back in the first place. When I see what is happening today, I am begining to take Abati serious when he wrote about the demons in Aso Rock, the demons he said turned good people to bad people when they enter that house. I think the deliverance of this country must start from that Aso rock, cause it is a shame that Buhari we all voted for has become another thing, the same Buhari that told us he will stop medical tourism is the greatest patronage of medical tourism. It is shameful that Nigeria as a nation from 1999 cant build a hospital that will take care of Nigerians. Buhari, Good luck to you while in UK. Osinabjo is our man - kizitosix037@gmail.com
