Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari may extend his visit to London to over 10 days as he seeks medical attention for his persistent ear problem, a report from Sahara Reporters says.
President Buhari had departed Nigeria on Monday with about 10 people. “This includes his [Mr. Buhari’s] physician Dr. Sanusi Rafindadi and another [medical] consultant,” someone close to the matter reportedly said.
Other members of the team include his Aide-de-Camp, Lt. Colonel Muhammed Lawal Abubakar; the State Chief of Protocol (SCOP) Lawal Kazaure; the Chief Security Officer (CSO); his Personal Assistant, and a cook.
Mr. Buhari will reside in “Abuja House,” the official residence of the Nigerian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, it’s believed. The President is expected to remain in outpatient care in the days following his medical visit, which suggests that surgery may be on the cards for him.
