The Presidency has confirmed that Nigerian president, Muhammadu Buhari, will not be resuming work at the Presidential Villa on Monday February 6, 2017 as earlier scheduled.

A State House Press Release signed by the Special Adviser to the president on media and publicity, Femi Adesina, indicates that Buhari has been advised to stay back in the UK to complete his medical routine. Below is the press release:


President Muhammadu Buhari has written to the National Assembly today, February 5, 2017, informing of his desire to extend his leave in order to complete and receive the results of a series of tests recommended by his doctors.

The President had planned to return to Abuja this (Sunday) evening, but was advised to complete the test cycle before returning. The notice has since been dispatched to the Senate President, and Speaker, House of Representatives.

Mr. President expresses his sincere gratitude to Nigerians for their concern, prayers and kind wishes.
