Buhari Didn’t Go To London For Treatment – Adesina

The Presidency on Tuesday insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari did not breach any Nigerian law by traveling to London for his vacation, during which he would also see E.N.T specialists for a persistent ear infection.
The Presidency said Mr. Buhari was treated by Nigerian medical experts in the country before he was advised to seek foreign medical treatment.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, who stated this yesterday, was reacting to insinuations in the public domain that by traveling abroad, Mr. Buhari violated an existing directive by the Federal Government that says government will no longer bear the cost of treatment for officials abroad if their condition can be treated in Nigeria.

Mr. Adesina, who referred to his statement on Sunday about the president’s 10-day vacation, explained that Buhari did not go to London for treatment, but to rest.
According to him, the president had been treated in Nigeria and would only seize the opportunity of his vacation to carry out further evaluation.

“You can check the statement we issued on Sunday again. The President did not go to London for treatment.
“We made it clear in that statement that he had been treated in Nigeria here.
“The medical experts here only told him that since he will be in London, he can seize that opportunity for evaluation.

“The President has not broken any rule”, the presidential spokesman maintained.
