Buhari will return from the United Kingdom today


Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to return to Nigeria on Friday evening after a two-week visit to the United Kingdom.
According to reports, the president will return to Nigeria by 5.00 p.m. on Thursday.

The president had traveled to the United Kingdom for the Global Education Summit on Financing the Global Partnership for Education (2021-2025).

The summit, according to Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity Femi Adesina, was expected to provide a platform for partners to chart a path forward toward transforming education systems in partner countries through the exchange of best practices.

Adesina also stated that the president will return to the country in the second week of August after completing a medical examination.

However, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chastised the president for traveling to the United Kingdom for the conference, claiming that it could have been held virtually.

Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, had described the president’s trip as a waste of the country’s scarce resources, accusing him of hiding under the guise of the conference to seek medical treatment.

Buhari, according to Ologbodiyan, is “wasteful, thinks only about himself, and cares less about millions of citizens who do not have access to foreign medical treatment, but who are dying every day because the government has crippled our health sector.”


Adesina stated that the president had over 40 years of patronage with doctors in the United Kingdom, and that it was best for the president to stick with those who had his medical records because he could afford it.
