President Buhari 

Dr Osahon Enabulele, the vice-president of the Commonwealth Medical Association (CMA), said it was a “national shame” that Mr Buhari had gone to the UK when Nigeria had many competent ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialists, as well as a National Ear Centre.


According to the health minister, Osagie Ehanire, Nigerians spent more than $1bn a year on medical tourism, an amount Buhari’s government promised to reduce.

President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the parliament to extend his medical leave in the UK citing medical reasons.

As no date has been set for his return, Nigerians continue to worry about the state of the president’s health amidst rumours of his death.

Protests in Abuja, Lagos, Enugu and other places register the general anger of Nigerians over the state of the country. In Abuja, some of the protesters spoke with BBC Africa.

One woman complained: “We are completely in the dark.”

And a lawyer added: “Anybody can fall sick but when a president falls sick, it should not be a confidential matter.”
