Buhari heads home after 'technical stopover' in London

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has again lashed out at President Muhammadu Buhari for his "mediocre" performance during his latest trip to the United States.

Yet by 10:00 the following the morning, the aircraft was still stationed in London.

Buhari said on his return to Nigeria from London a year ago that he "had never been so sick" and had undergone blood transfusions. When local media questioned presidential spokespeople over Buhari's whereabouts, none of them provided a response.

Reacting in a post on his Twitter page on Friday, Omokri said: "So President Buhari's plane was big enough to fly to the USA without a "technical stopover", but too small to return to Nigeria without doing a "technical stopover" in London?"

The president's special adviser on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, had earlier today dismissed social and traditional media reports on the whereabouts of the president, who had a technical stopover in London.

"On security, the Nigerian delegation was pleased from the onset that the Trump administration had agreed to the major sale of military equipment to Nigeria".

The stopover also raised speculation over the state of Buhari's health, given that he has previously traveled to London for treatment on an undisclosed condition between 2016 and 2017.

Following his arrival in the USA on Sunday, he visited the Blair House at Washington D.C. and held a bilateral meeting with President Trump on Monday at the White House.

Buhari, visiting the United States on a mission to drum up more counterterrorism support and U.S. business investment, thanked Trump for Washington's support to help rebuild the country's northeast, which has been under assault for nine years from Boko Haram.

PDP said the President Buhari's handlers should adequately prepare him before global outings as well as ensure full disclosure on all his visits outside the country since he embodies the image and integrity of Nigeria until May 29, 2019.

"The President expressed appreciation for these and requested additional support to counterinsurgency. So the best thing for me is to keep quiet".

"Also we have had a very serious problem with Christians who are being murdered, killed in Nigeria".

"So the technical stopover I talked about is that the journey from USA to Abuja is broken into two". "I also know that the President (Buhari) has been able to cut that down very substantially".
