The President-elect Muhammadu Buhari on Friday left for Britain on a private visit, his first such trip outside the country since winning the March 28 presidential election.
The news of his trip to the United Kingdom for alleged medical reasons has gone viral on the internet. Surprisingly, he was said to have found himself on the same plane with Minister of Petroleum Resources Diezani Allison Maduekwe.
But a statement issued later on Friday night by Mallam Garba Shehu, the Head Media Team of the President-elect said Buhari would use the opportunity of the visit to take a much-deserved rest
ahead of his inauguration on May 29.
”He is expected back in the country a few days before the inauguration, refreshed and ready to hit the ground running once he is sworn into office,” he said
