President Muhammadu Buhari has returned from London after a routine medical check-up.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Nigerian leader departed Abuja for the routine medical check-up in London on March 6.

The president had earlier wanted to embark on the medical trip from Nairobi, Kenya, after attending the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) at 50 in that country, on March 5, but returned to Nigeria on March 4.

The president’s spokesman, Femi Adesina, had on March 1, in a statement, said that from Kenya, the president would proceed to London for “routine medical checks that will last for a maximum of two weeks.”

However, the president returned to Abuja on Friday at about 1.p.m. before embarking on the London trip on March 6.

While in London, the president was believed to have met with the Interim National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Committee (CECC), Mala Buni.

The president, at the end of the London meeting with Mr Buni, called on governors of the All progressives Congress (APC) to stop further utterances that lead to disunity ahead of the National Convention.

A statement by the president’s spokesman, Femi Adesina, on Wednesday in Abuja, said the president made the call via a letter he personally signed, and addressed to Governor Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State.

Mr Bagudu is also the Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum.
