The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said this in an interview with our correspondent on the telephone on Thursday (today).

Buhari, who travelled to the United States for a meeting with President Donald Trump, had left Washington, D.C. on Tuesday after the Monday meeting.

As of the time of filing this report, the President has yet to return to Nigeria.

When contacted on the matter, Shehu, who was on Buhari’s delegation to US said, “They had a technical stopover in London. I am sure if you keep your ears to the ground, you will hear of his arrival soon.”

The presidential spokesman did not give details of the “technical stopover” but insisted it’s not something to worry about.

Our correspondent however learnt that Buhari’s scheduled trip to his hometown, Daura in Katsina State, might have been cancelled due to the delay in his arrival back in the country.

Buhari, in 2017, spent months in the British capital attending to his health.

He had, on arrival after one of such medical trips, said he had never been that sick in his life.
