On February 5, 2016, eight months after assuming office, the President took his first medical trip to London, the United Kingdom, spending six days.

Buhari’s second medical trip would follow four months later on June 6, 2016. He spent 10 days treating an undisclosed ear infection after which he rested for three extra days before returning to Abuja on June 19, 2016.

On January 19, 2017, the President embarked on his second longest medical trip. Before leaving, however, he wrote to the Bukola Saraki-led Senate revealing his plan to travel to London on a 10-day vacation.

In the letter, the Nigerian leader said he would hand over to his deputy, Prof Yemi Osinbajo. Though the medical holiday was due to commence on January 23, 2017, Buhari left Abuja the same day.

He returned to Abuja on March 10, 2017, spending 50 days away.

In May of the same year, barely two months after his last trip, the President departed for London for his longest medical pilgrimage lasting 104 days.

It is still unclear what ailment he was being treated for, but Nigerians were asked to “pray” for the President.

What followed were speculations and misinformation about his health status, with some presuming him dead and replaced with a body double.

The long treatment must have helped as the President would not visit London for another medical check-up until a year later in May 2018 when he spent four days on “medical review.”

In late March 2021, Buhari departed for London again for a “routine medical check-up” that lasted 15 days.

His trip came amid a labour crisis in the health sector, which saw members of the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors commencing an indefinite strike over unpaid allowances.

On March 6, 2022, the President jetted out to London for a medical trip, which lasted 12 days.

On October 31, 2022, the President departed Owerri, the Imo State capital, for London on another medical check-up lasting about two weeks. He returned to the country on November 13, 2022.

“He has used the same medical team for about 40 years.”

Leave  that  and let's talk about the  women  leader of Labour Party in Kaduna state  that was  assassinated a few days ago.  It's  quite  disturbing that  up till this moment  the president of Nigeria,  governor of Kaduna state  and  the  IGP have not  commented on the ugly incident.  What  does that tell you? It happened in kogi state  too when the  PDP women Leader was burnt  alive.  Hmmmm. APC . There is God  o.
