The Presidency has reacted to claims that President Muhammadu Buhari’s, trip to the UK is for medical treatment.
The special adviser to the president on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said people are free to say his trip was for medicals.
Featuring on ‘Politics Today’, a programme by Channels Television, Adesina said that people have the right to believe Buhari’s UK trip is for medicals. He said;
“Those who want to interpret everything, those who want to believe all things should just believe that it is a private trip. When a man goes on a private trip, he has the right to use his time the way he deems because he has the right to private time.
“So those who want to believe it’s a medical trip, they have the right to believe, if it pleases them and makes them happier”.
Recall that Buhari jetted out to UK on Thursday when he finished commissioning some developmental projects in Borno state.
The Nigerian President is expected to spend 10 days in the UK and return to Nigeria on May 5.
