Presidency to extend President Buhari stay in London

The President of Nigeria, Mohammed Buhari  may Not be  Returning To Nigeria any time soon.

 

The Presidency is planning to extend the stay of President Muhamadu Buhari who has been in the United Kingdom since March 30 on a routine medical check-up, as protests continue at the Nigerian Mission House in London.

 

SaharaReporters learnt that although Buhari failed to hand over to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, the Vice President has been told to keep himself in acting capacity, as the extension is being worked out.

While not giving a particular date, Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, had said that the President would be back in the second week of April 2021.

 

 


SaharaReporters learnt that the planned return date might no longer be feasible – this is because the growing protest in London by #HarassBuhariOutofLondon and #RevolutionNow campaigners has reportedly affected the President from being taken to the places he wants to go in the city.

 

“Buhari did not hand over to the Vice President, Professor Osinbajo but he told him to keep acting in his absence. As it stands now, he will extend his stay in London from what we are hearing. The protest by #Revolutionnow has hampered his abilities to go around London. An extension is now in the offing,” a top official disclosed to this newspaper.

Buhari had spent over 193 days on medical leave in the United Kingdom since he assumed office in 2015, findings by SaharaReporters revealed.

 

 


The president’s trips have attracted a lot of backlash on social media as the announcement of his ongoing trip came around the time the National Association of Resident Doctors announced that its members would be going on strike over government’s failure to meet its demands, including non-payment of allowances.
