Medical Trip: President Buhari opens up on the Status of his health

Even when people were clamouring that his son should be flown overseas, he said no. But the Nigerian leader has repeatedly said he has done well and would run again.

The presidential spokesman had also stated that the doctor requested the president to return for a meeting which he (Buhari) agreed to do.

Before the last election in 2015, the PDP - then in power under president Goodluck Jonathan - claimed that Buhari had terminal prostate cancer.


Shehu had on Monday said Buhari would undertake the trip to see his doctor with whom he had met in the course of the "technical stopover" for aircraft maintenance in London on his way back from Washington DC penultimate week.

He also stopped by in the United Kingdom last week, while returning from an official trip to the USA -a visit his media managers initially denied and names a "technical stopover" before they were forced to admit it.

Speaking further on the state of Healthcare in Nigeria, the Health Minister said Nigerians are secretive about details of their healthcare, hence the reason why many prefer private to public hospitals. "If he truly wants Nigeria to grow, His doctor should fly down here instead, whatever equipments and knowledge he has should be brought down to a hospital here to improve our health care system", commentator Yul Edochie said in a tweet.
