Muhammadu Buhari has returned to Nigeria after weeks of medical leave in the UK
Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has returned home after extended medical leave in the UK, state television reported on Friday.
Buhari walked unaided from his plane after it landed at an air force base in the northern city of Kaduna. The former military ruler then boarded a waiting helicopter, state television showed.
The 74-year-old, who took power in May 2015, left Abuja on January 19 for treatment in Britain.
He had originally planned to stay 10 days but stayed longer to rest after consulting his doctors, deepening suspicions that his health was far worse than officials are publicly admitting.
