President Muhammadu Buhari will be on the road again to London, the United Kingdom on Friday, June 25, 2021, for a scheduled medical follow-up.
According to his special adviser, Femi Adesina, the President should be back in the country during the second week of July 2021.
Recall that President Buhari had on March 30 departed Abuja for London, United Kingdom, for routine medical check-up.
The president has been criticized by many Nigerians for traveling for medical treatment.
Nigeria’s main opposition party, PDP, has continued to lash at the President, saying his medical trip abroad was a direct indictment of his presidency over its failure to fix the country’s healthcare system.
In a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP said it was worrisome that under Mr Buhari, even the highly-rated State House Clinic had become moribund that it could not provide medical check-up for the president.
The opposition party said although it had nothing against any person, including Mr Buhari seeking medical services abroad, it was worried that “the Buhari presidency is taking no decisive steps to fix our healthcare system, ostensibly because Mr President can afford overseas medical treatment at taxpayers’ expense.”
