President Muhammadu Buhari has returned to Abuja after what has been described as a successful medical check-up in the United Kingdom.
Roving Naija gathered that the presidential aircraft conveying the president and some presidential aides landed at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja Thursday evening at about 4.45 p.m.
President Buhari had on March 30 departed Abuja for London, United Kingdom, for routine medical check-up.
The move generated heated debates as some faulted the medical trip abroad which is a reflection of the distrust in local medical services.
Some of those at the airport on Thursday to welcome the president included the Chief of Staff to the President, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Malam Muhammed Bello, and the National Security Adviser to the President, retired Maj.-Gen. Babagana Monguno.
Others were the service chiefs, acting Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, the Director-General, National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Ahmed Rufa’i, the Director General of the Department of State Services, Yusuf Bichi and other presidential aides.
