Politics Presidency Speaks on Buhari's Probable Return to UK for More Medical Tests



Nigeria's Presidential Aide, Shehu Garba in an interview with Arise TV during the weekend was quizzed about the return of President Muhammadu Buhari to the United Kingdom for further medical checkups.

Replying, Garba said though the actual date remained uncertain, the decision would solely “be determined by him (Buhari) and his own doctors”.

“But he has given notice that he will need to go back and that is normal,” he added.

He added that the atmosphere at the Aso Villa is one of relief.

According to him, "matters of medical disclosure are extremely private. In the course of the process, Femi Adesina got a long note from the Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, describing what disclosure would mean in medical science.”

He added that it was up to the patient to disclose what his ailment is, as even the doctor cannot disclose it to anyone.

“Let me confirm to you that the president had no knowledge of the ailment even before he left. He just went for a medical check up,” Shehu stated.
