The presidential aircraft which conveyed the president and some presidential aides landed at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja at about 4.45 p.m.

The President  had on March 30 departed Abuja for London, United Kingdom, for a routine medical check-up.

Since his trip the fourth night ago, the issue has long created controversy among Nigerians despite the huge amount allocated to the Aso Rock clinic annually.

Critics and members of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had also expressed their concerns over the president’s frequent trips to the United Kingdom.

“It is indeed worrisome that under President Buhari, even the hitherto highly rated State House Clinic, has become so moribund that it cannot provide a simple medical checkup service for Mr. President,” the PDP said in a statement in which it also accused the Buhari government of wasting taxpayers’ money.

Recall that the president’s health status became a subject of intense debates during the 2019 general election with claims that he was unfit to govern the West African nation.

But his media aides were quick to defeat the insinuations that their principal was gravely ill, insisting that the recent London visit was not an emergency but a routine medical checkup.

“It is a routine medical check-up; the President has undertaken this with a set of doctors that he has retained over many years,” said Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity.

Recall also that resident doctors who at the time embarked on strike blasted the president for dying abroad for a checkup when the health facilities in the country are under-equipped.

As President Buhari returns to the country, what is your take upon his regular medical check up abroad?
