Buhari to Meet Personal Doctor in Paris on Saturday As Health Deteriorates

President Muhammadu Buhari will leave Nigeria on Saturday for an official trip to Paris, the France capital, to meet with his personal doctor.

It was gathered that Buhari would be in Paris for at least four days, where he has also been scheduled to meet his doctor.

“Buhari will be heading to Paris for four days. He was planning to go to Kampala (Uganda) and travel to London, the United Kingdom, to see his doctors but they opted to meet him in Paris. He will be travelling on Saturday,” a top source disclosed this to SaharaReporters.

Buhari had planned to attend the inauguration of Uganda’s tight-fist dictator, Yoweri Museveni, and from there let him visit the UK for treatment.

But the plan was later shelved and the decision to send Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to Uganda to represent Buhari was made at the last minute when it appeared that the UK trip was not feasible.

Top presidency sources revealed that Buhari’s health, particularly his dementia, had allegedly deteriorated recently, and he was incoherent at the security chiefs’ meetings in the last two weeks.

Osinbajo had represented President Muhammadu Buhari at the swearing-in of Yoweri Kaguta Museveni as Ugandan president for the sixth term.
