He resumed his duties on August 21 after returning from a UK visit that began May 7, 2017.
The months-long visit followed an earlier stay in the UK from January through March, which began much speculation over the 75-year-old Buhari’s fitness for office..
The president is said to be off to London for an official meeting where he will be discussing with British Prime Minister Theresa May before participating in the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings from April 18 through 20.
Reports further clarify that, President Buhari will be meeting with Ben van Beurden, the CEO of Royal Dutch Shell, to discuss plans for the company and its partners to invest USD$15 billion in Nigeria’s oil industry.
While in London, President Buhari will connect with Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, who has developed a connection with the Nigerian president in promoting religious harmony which some persons still call a political strategy ahead of the 2019 elections.
Welby was among Buhari’s most prominent guests during an extended stay at Abuja House London in 2017 when the president was seeking medical treatment.
Those concerns are resurfacing as Buhari and his All Progressives Congress (APC) party contemplate running for a second term in the February 2019 elections.
