Following his return to Nigeria today, March 10, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari is likely to go back to the United Kingdom in three weeks.
It seems the President is not back in the country to stay for long as sources in the Presidency and his medical team have reportedly said the President will likely return to the UK to continue treatment for an unnamed ailment, Sahara Reporters reports.
There are reports that the president's medical team did not necessarily give him a go ahead to travel but he reportedly went against medical advice to travel because some members of his political circle were afraid that their influence was about to slip and they pressured him to come home and reduced anxiety among his followers.
A source reportedly disclosed that the president finally succumbed to his people's pleas that he should leave the UK late yesterday, adding that the schedule left little room for preparation.
Due to the unplanned decision to leave UK, the presidential jet took off from Stansted Airport in London shortly after 1 a.m. and his plane touched ground in Kaduna at 7:41 a.m.
Recall that President Buhari travelled out of the country on January 19, 2017 for a ten-day vacation which eventually was extended indefinitely due to undisclosed medical reasons.
Sources of Sahara Reporters also said that, given Mr. Buhari’s feeble health, the president was bound to maintain a highly light schedule with few, if any, public engagements before returning to the UK in a few weeks to continue his treatment.

Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has said he is a little bit tired even as he gave Vice President Yemi Osinbajo the go ahead to continue as acting president.
Buhari made the remark while addressing members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC), all heads of security agencies and the governors Kogi, Yahaya Bello and Zamfara, Abdulaziz Yari, in a closed door meeting shortly after his arrival to the country.
