President Muhammadu Buhari made a surprise return to the country on Friday after attending the Special Session of the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP@50) in Kenya.
Mr Buhari was billed to travel from Kenya to London for a routine medical check-up, a statement by the Presidency had said on Monday.
He was billed to spend a maximum of two weeks in London.
But one of Mr Buhari’s aides, Bashir Ahmad, tweeted on Friday morning that the president had returned to the country.
“President Muhammadu Buhari has returned to Abuja, after his participation in the 50th Anniversary of the UN Environmental Programme (UNEP) in Nairobi, Kenya,” Mr Ahmad said on his Twitter handle @BashirAhmaad.
According to Garba Shehu, Mr Buhari returned to Abuja after an early completion of his task in Nairobi, the Kenyan capital.
On whether the President had shelved his trip to London, Mr Shehu said, “No, he hasn’t shelved his trip to London. The plan is still there. He finished his business in Kenya and made an early return. The trip to London is Sunday.”
