The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (ret. ), has traveled to Abuja from London, England, where he had dental care over the previous week.
Buhari’s Gulfstream aircraft landed at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja’s Presidential wing.
The President’s NAF 001 carrier was flown to Boeing’s maintenance, repair, and overhaul facility in Seattle, Washington, on April 30 for a significant maintenance visit or D Check, according to The PUNCH.
The Nigerian president has traveled aboard another plane from the Presidential Air Fleet in the last two weeks, including his journey to London on May 3 to attend the crowning of King Charles III and the Queen Consort, Camilla.
According to the presidency, Buhari’s stay was prolonged by one week for dental work despite the trip’s original five-day plan.
He “will remain in London, United Kingdom, for an additional week, based on the advice of his dentist, who has started caring for him,” according to a statement issued late on May 9 and signed by Femi Adesina, the President’s Special Advisor on Media and Publicity.
Since taking office in 2015, he has traveled for at least 232 days for medical treatment.
