Buhari Cancels Medical Trip To London, Invites Physicians To Nigeria

President Muhammadu Buhari
on Wednesday changed a plan by which he was due to return to London this
weekend for another round of medical treatment, barely two weeks after
his return from a hospital there.

Instead, his doctors will be arriving on Friday to carry out further medical examination on him.

Sources at the Presidency informed flash newz that the
president’s advance party had already left Abuja earlier in the day by
Ethiopian Airlines before they were recalled to Abuja.

Our sources say the hawks within the presidency advised against
taking the president abroad so soon after his seven weeks away, as that
would begin to feed the rumor mill all over again about his ailment.

In a short televised address upon his return, Buhari had hinted about
returning to the hospital shortly, saying there might be a need “for
further follow-up within weeks.”  Given the askew political
climate in the country, however, his advisers felt it was unwise to
allow him to stay away for too long.

The president has traveled to London several times since coming to
power for a medical reason before traveling earlier this year for a
prolonged medical treatment.  He had also traveled there in June 2016,
reportedly consulting with an ear, nose and throat specialist after he
contracted an ear infection.

The latest developments come as pressure is mounting on the
presidency to disclose how much was spent on his 49-day “medical
vacation” in the United Kingdom, with Nigerians saying they have a right
to know.

Activists, including well-known lawyer Femi Falana, and civil society
groups such as the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project,
the Centre for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership, and the Campaign for
Democracy, among others, argue that the medical bill is of public
interest because Buhari touted transparency and change in public affairs
when he ran for the presidency
