President Buhari Extends Medical Vacation

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

This is according to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina.

In a letter dated February 5, 2017, Adesina said the President had planned to return to Abuja on Sunday evening, but was advised to complete the test cycle before returning.

He said notice has since been dispatched to the Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, and the Speaker, House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara.
