The wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, today (May 30) proceeded to
London, United Kingdom, to join her husband, President Muhammadu
Buhari who has been on medical vacation since May 7.
According to a statement by the spokesperson to the wife of the President,
Mrs. Bisi Olumide-Ajayi, the President’s wife was filled with gratitude to
Nigerians who have been supporting her husband with prayers for a speedy
recovery and safe return to the country.
Mrs. Buhari’s trip is coming three weeks after the President embarked on
his latest medical vacation which the presidency said is necessitated by the
need for a follow up consultation on the president’s medical treatment as
recommended by his doctors.
It would be recalled that the Special Adviser to the President on Media and
Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina had announced shortly before President
Muhammadu Buhari departed for London that the duration of his stay
would be determined by his doctors.
The President left shortly after receiving and addressing the 82 Chibok
girls who arrived the federal capital territory earlier in the day shortly after
they were released from the den of their Boko haram captors.
President Buhari had transmitted letters to both Chambers of the National
assembly notifying both the senate and the House of Representatives about
his trip and directing that the Vice President take charge of his functions
