Altogether, President Buhari has now spent 100 days receiving medical care outside Nigeria

Exactly 50 days ago on Monday, President Muhammadu Buhari left the country for London in what the State House described as a trip for medical check-up.

The latest trip has surpassed the extent of his first trip of the year in which he left on January 19 and returned on March 10. He spent exactly fifty days on that trip.

Back then, the presidency said Mr. Buhari will be away for only 10 days, which later turned out to be five times longer.

During the course of his first trip, senior administration officials, including Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, ministers and media advisers, were providing Nigerians scattered updates about the president’s health.

Unlike the first trip, however, information flow has been in short supply this time around, which has left the citizens with little choice but to speculate.

Altogether, the president has now spent 100 days receiving medical care outside Nigeria out of 176 days so far in 2017.

Even when he dashed back to the country on March 10, he was unable to fully carry out his official duties before he was ultimately flown back to London.

Despite Mr. Buhari admitting he was ill and urging prayers from Nigerians, his office still continues to turn down request that he disclose specific details about his illness.
