President Muhammadu Buhari will leave the shores of Nigeria to London United Kingdom on Monday for a short vacation, where he will seek medical treatment for his ear infections.

A short message by the his special adviser on media, Mr. Femin Adedina stated that President Muhammadu Buhari will take a 10 days off and travel to London to rest, as well as see an Ear, Nose And Throat specialist (E.N.T) for a persistent ear infection.

The President’s ear condition has been a subject of media attention in the last couple of days. First, the president cancelled his much advertised official visit to Lagos citing ear infection.

President Buhari has also jettisoned some other assignments because of the ear condition.

Although Presidency had stated earlier that that President Buhari is hale and hearty, the need to travel for ear treatment will raise questions as to the state of health of the president.
