Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari Thursday met with the leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in London.
Both former governor of Lagos State and a leader of the party Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and former national chairman of the APC, Bisi Akande, met with the president at Abuja House, London, according to a message from the official presidency Twitter account.
Buhari left Nigeria in January for London to “undergo routine medical check-ups” during a short holiday and was expected to resume work on February 6.
But he later extended the vacation on the advice of his doctors, his spokesman, Femi Adesina said.
Buhari’s current visit to London would make it the second time in less than a year he has gone there for medical treatment.
He visited London in June 2016 for treatment to what the presidency described as a persistent inner ear infection, which caused him to pull out of several scheduled engagements.
