Buhari leaves London, expected in Nigeria Friday

Adewole made the disclosure while defending Buhari's recent medical trip to the United Kingdom, stressing that the President's action is not an indictment on Nigeria's health sector.

Nigeria's opposition party, People's Democractic Party (PDP), said it was time for the president to reveal his medical condition.

President Muhammadu Buhari on his arrival at the airport in Abuja yesterday revealed that he is in good health.

The President had on Friday joined the Christian community in Nigeria and the national leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in mourning the passing on of the General Secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Musa Asake.

Adesina, in the statement titled "Beware of Fake Statements Ascribed to President Buhari", claimed that some statements credited to the president on social media were false. "Take that from me as the Honourable Minister", Adewole said.

Few days after, he returned to London for a four day medical trip.

Buhari left Nigeria for the United Kingdom on Tuesday to see his doctor for undisclosed ailments, again prompting the opposition Peoples Democratic Party to demand the 75-year-old president come clean about his health. So far, he has failed to state the exact nature of his illness.
