The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, says President Muhammadu Buhari will spend only four days in London after which he will return to Nigeria.
Adesina, however, did not state the reason for Buhari’s visit.
Responding to an inquiry via a text message, the President’s spokesman said, “We just landed in London. The President is in transit; to be back in Nigeria on Monday.”
The President had departed New York for London after attending the United Nations General Assembly.
The Presidency had said last week that Buhari would be making a stopover at London before returning to Nigeria but did not disclose the reason for his return.
Buhari has spent about 160 non-consecutive days in London for medical treatment this year.
His prolonged medical leave spurred protests in Nigeria and London which forced him to abruptly return.
Unconfirmed reports have it that he had returned to London for medical treatment.
