Buhari returns from U.K.

Muhammadu Buhari Arrives from the U.K.

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muhammadu Buhari, has returned to Nigeria from the United Kingdom.

He arrived Abuja Friday morning after about 10 days in London.

Details of his arrival were sketchy at the time of filing this report.

Efforts to reach the spokesperson of the APC Presidential Campaign Organisation, Garba Shehu, were not successful as he did not pick calls to his mobile telephone. He did not return the calls or respond to a text message to him.

Mr. Buhari’s trip to the U.K. had been a major subject of controversy as some supporters of President Goodluck Jonathan, his main challenger in the March 28 presidential election, accused him of embarking on a secret medical trip abroad.

The president’s supporters have said Mr. Buhari, 72, is medically unfit to be elected president.

While Mr. Buhari was away in London, some chieftains of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, notably Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State, insisted that he was on a medical trip, a claim members of Mr. Buhari’s party, APC, repeatedly refuted.

Mr. Buhari had undertaken the London trip after leading the APC presidential campaign train to almost all the 36 states in readiness for the election which had earlier been scheduled for February 14, before being postponed to March 28 by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

Party sources said Mr. Buhari visited London to rest following the poll shift.

Despite the allegations of poor health, Mr. Buhari, while in London, delivered a lecture at the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House, explaining why he is seeking to return to power.

He had earlier met with a former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair.

Mr. Buhari’s participation in the March 28 presidential election will be his fourth having contested unsuccessfully for the position in 2003, 2007, and 2011.

        • August January

          An ex-president or head of state, including Shonekan, is entitled to the same salary as the incumbent president. That’s what you would see in the constitution. So, tell me how it’s impossible for him to take care of his children from that, or send them on studies abroad. You may propagate anything you like about Buhari, the whole world has testified to his simplicity and incorruptibility, unlike your Jonathan who has been internationally acclaimed as a leading corrupt president in the world

      Moron! There are only two schedule flights of British Airways every day from London to Abuja; one at 10:40pm to 6am and the other 9am to 2.35pm.

      I guess you don’t travel even in Nigeria. Only an ignorant/jobless cargo like you would prefer to waste the better part of a day in flight from 9am to 2.35pm simply because you want to show off rather than spend your time doing the natural thing of sleeping in flight from 10:40pm to 6am. Pathetic!

    Continent Nigeria is indeed critically ill. So visibly ill that the dormant, or if you like, the comatose who has been inactive for the past 30yrs except for participating in that despotic and murderous regime of Abacha, now becomes the CHANGE or ‘agent’ of CHANGE that fellow mentally unstable elements want to sell to Nigerians and the whole world. Of Course the West in the crude methodology of deception will always befriend such camp. We’ve seen them do it many times over and over again in many places around the world. But they should get it pointblank…that there are a quantum of continent Nigerians from certain regions which the West or US can never colonize again.

    Duncee refused to show up for a debate in Nigeria with over 200m people. Instead, he chose a charlatan’s house with a population of less than 70m. So who is more important? Continent Nigerians or the people of United Kingdom? …is this how the change will come? …That filthy camp that says it represents change fails to look into the mirror. But we hope they would and soon too.

    Any continent Nigerian regard less of regional affiliation and/or ethnicity is qualified to be President. For any one, whether intoxicated or not, to declare that Jonathan must not be President bcos he is from the South (Niger Delta) is in my own opinion a most mumuistic statement.
    Nigeria needs bespoke solution to its problem. We are not a country but a continent. Until we disintegrate, de-amalgamate, break up into the real countries that we are and represent, there will always be problem.

    How on earth does anyone expect the Niger Delta to accept a Northern President? It is just not possible. The only guarantee for peace is for Jonathan to complete his term till 2020 and the someone from the Igbo East will take over till 2028, then the North can begin to think of Presidency. Suicide bombs will not help you here.

It has no other name, it is called mumuism.

    You all can see how our able and incorruptible General is walking confidently from the airport. This is what I call “OSONDI, OWENDI”. Jealous and evil PDP e-rats can drown in the ocean. Who cares. Patience Jonathan and GEJ both have the mouth to insult GMB. God spared Patie’s life, who spent months in German hospital, yet she refused to be humble. GEJ frequent same German hospital in the name of rest. Why are you guys killing yourselves over another man’s headache. GMB has to go for check up abroad before PDP will use a compromised doctor in Nigeria to harm him- their plan so far since they’ve been wishing him dead. When GMB takes over, our hospitals will work again,our refineries will refine crude again, our education system will work, corruption will disappear, stealing will be recognized as corruption, Nigeria will be respected amongst the committee of nations, Nigeria will have a national carrier (airline), not Presidential fleet, electricity generation will more than improve, payment of non-existence subsidy will stop, oil bunkering will stop, there will be no more try your luck or kalukalu (YOUWIN) for Nigerian graduates to be employed or be entrepreneurs, people like Bode George, Fayose, GEJ, Asari, Edwin Clark, IBB and all the evil men will go on exile. The time is come- March 28

      You are perfectly correct my brother. Indeed I trust he will first of all return our 2.8b naira of 1978(500b naira now) , account for our billions stolen in in PTF, explain 53 suit cases and ask the national assembly to pass a new law legalizing NDA admissions gotten from the back door. He will surely ask them to make it retrospective as he did in the murder of those serving 6 month jail terms before his coup of 1984. He will still need to legalize coup plotting and the sacking of elected democracies and do them retrospectively and also move to legalize kidnapping in UK. I suppose this kidnapping will be one gain from the Chatham house foray.

Every good report even from outside Nigeria talks of Chadian army.How can you say that a call a serving President is the main challenger to GMB. I sympathize with all of you. God has chosen GEJ to rule Nigeria up to the 29th of May 2019. He will hand over to a young and vibrant Northerner. You may not make all the noise but the number Nigerians who want GEJ very much outnumber the number of Nigerians who want GMB.
