President Muhammadu Buhari has extended his 10-days vacation in London, United Kingdom.

Originally scheduled to return to Nigeria on Sunday, February 5, 2017 and resume work on Monday, February 6, 2017, the President has extended his vacation.

According to a statement from Femi Adesina, Buhari has written to the National Assembly on Sunday, February 5, 2017, informing of his desire to extend his leave in order to complete and receive the results of a series of tests recommended by his doctors.

Adesina further said that President Buhari had planned to return to Abuja Sunday evening, but was advised to complete the test cycle before returning.

The notice has since been dispatched to the Senate President, and Speaker, House of Representatives.

Adesina also said President Buhari expresses his sincere gratitude to Nigerians for their concern, prayers and kind wishes.
