No date yet for Buhari’s return – Presidency | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


Despite the meeting President Muhammadu Buhari held with some APC state governors on Sunday, no date has been fixed for his return to the country.

But investigations by one of our correspondents showed that no date had yet been fixed for the President’s return.

Sources, who spoke with one of our correspondents, said although the President’s health had improved tremendously, his return date was still in the hands of his doctors.

“The President made it clear in his letter to the National Assembly that the duration of his stay in London would be determined by his doctor. That has not changed. He must get a clean bill of health before he returns,” one of the sources said.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, confirmed this in an interview.

When asked to say specifically when Buhari was due back in the country in view of the latest development, Adesina said, “I am not a doctor and even if I am, it is clear that I am not part of the team that is attending to the President.

“His date of return will be decided by that medical team.”

Adesina also confirmed to one of our correspondents that the Sunday meeting was just one among other meetings Buhari would have with individuals before returning to the country.

He said, “More meetings are coming; there will be broader ones. That Sunday meeting was just the beginning.”

The presidential spokesman added that the Presidency was not in any way disturbed by the two cases instituted in court seeking to compel the Federal Executive Council to declare Buhari incapacitated and asking Senate President Bukola Saraki to constitute a medical panel on Buhari’s health condition.

“We are in a democracy; it is their (plaintiffs’) right. The court will determine the case on its merit,” Adesina said.

  1. Even if Buhari is the right personality Nigeria needs at this time but because of his health issues its obvious he is not capable of the position.How would an active president of a country who wish to progress be spending 2 months at intervals abroad for treatment and yet nobody is talking about it just because he's from the north and yet we glamor one Nigeria and democracy. Where's the democracy if the people can't account of the health condition of their father(president)what makes Buhari a president if everything about him should be hidden... what kind of stupid country is Nigeria.. When Nnamdi kalu call us zoo republic people would begin to argue.How can Nigeria progress in this manner

  2. Hahahahaha, I heard some saying he's returning on 27 now,no date again...this country self..kaa ifele mee unuu ndi ojoo na agba amaa ugha.
