Nigerian president travels overseas for medical consultation

In a statement on Friday, Okupe said though he's not a supporter of Buhari, it's embarrassing how some Nigerians "outrightly deride him, wish him dead as if they themselves are not human".

Presidency spokesman Femi Adesina said the 74-year-old's doctors would determine how long he stayed in the British capital, where he spent almost two months undergoing treatment from mid-January.

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo and Senate President Bukola Saraki on Sunday night paid a farewell visit to President Muhammadu Buhari, who is scheduled to leave for London on medical trip.

‎The Northern Youth Leaders Forum has berated the 19 northern governors for not doing enough to protect President Muhammadu Buhari in what it termed "his moment of trial".

Adesina, however, insisted that there was "no cause for worry".

After returning on March 10 from a 50-day medical vacation in the United Kingdom (UK), President Buhari disclosed that he would be returning for further medical checks.

"I couldn't recall being so sick since I was a young man", he said at a meeting with security chiefs and ministers.

He has also been absent from the last couple of Federal Executive Council meetings usually held at the presidential villa, leaving Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to chair those meetings.

But the presidency insisted that there was no reason for Nigerians to panic. "Both young and old do fall ill and death certainly is not exclusively restricted to the old, or young, or rich, poor or powerful", the ex-presidential aide said.

"Nobody is fooled by their "see no evil, hear no evil posture" which is deliberate so as not to make them appear too supportive of the president for fear that that might make them lose out in case the president decides not to continue".

His wife, Aisha, has also insisted that her husband's health was "not as bad as it's being perceived", without specifying the nature of his illness.

She wrote in a twitter post on Tuesday that "He continues to carry out his responsibilities during this period", although she did not state exactly when may be wrong with the President.
