The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has on Wednesday, July 28, said that his boss prefers to have his medical check-up in the United Kingdom because Nigeria’s doctors do not have his medical profile.
He said this while responding to a question on why Buhari could not be treated in Nigeria during a programme on Channels Television
According to him, only the doctors in the United Kingdom have Buhari’s medical record.
He added that the president has been using a medical team in the UK for over 40 years.
He said, “President Buhari has been with the same doctors and medical team for upward of 40 years,” he said when asked why the President couldn’t have been treated in Nigeria.
“It is advisable that he continues with that who knows his medical history and that is why he comes to London to see them. He has used the same medical team for over 40 years. Once you can afford it, then stay with the team that has your history.”
