Buhari currently in London due to ‘technical stopover’ – Presidency

President Muhammadu Buhari is currently in London, United Kingdom.

The Presidency has, however, attributed his presence in the British capital to what it called “technical stopover.”

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, made this known in an interview with Punch on Thursday (today).

He said: “They (President Buhari and his close attendants) 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, however, did not give details of the ‘technical stopover’ but insisted it’s not something to worry about.

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 is yet to return to Nigeria.
