The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Mohammadu Buhari, Friday, arrived Nigeria from the United Kingdom after more than two weeks during which he gave a speech at the famous Royal Institute of Internal Affairs, popularly known as Chatham House.
Buhari left Nigeria for London on February 19 amid rumours that he sneaked out of the country to attend to his alleged failing health.
“I just went off for a couple of weeks to rest. That’s all I did,” Buhari told newsmen who asked about his trip.
Asked whether he visited any London hospital while in London, as claimed by Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose who have been claiming that the APC candidate was not enjoying good health, Buhari queried; “What is wrong for me to go the hospital? Am I not here now? Are you not seeing me? Are you seeing a sick man?”
He also added that he “went to Chatham House. I read an address and there was a question and answer session. That’s all.”
In the meantime, the South West chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has congratulated General Buhari on “his safe return to the country.”
“Buhari is welcome back in the country and we wish him good health,” Dare Omotosho, Zonal Publicity Secretary of the party said, while speaking with Saturday Tribune in Ado Ekiti.
