Nigeria’s President retired Gen. Muhammadu Buhari will address Nigerians on Monday morning, following his return earlier today from medical treatment in London since May 7, 2017.
The USAfrica News Index of May 15-August 15, 2017 show that non-disclosure to Nigerians about the nature of his illness and complicated by his prolonged absence led many activists, some members of the clergy and a few political leaders demanding for him to either return or resign.
Members of his APC party scoffed at the demand rather arguing that Buhari who is in his late 70s and served as military dictator from 1984 to 1986, will be their flag bearer in 2019.
Buhari first flew to London for treatment of what his media aides said was a persistent “ear infection in 2016. Early in 2017, specifically January, February into early March, he was in London.
One of senior special assistants in the Buhari presidency informed USAfricaonline.com that “our President will work a very light schedule until he recovers fully.”
