In one of his rare trips outside the country last year, the president flew to Bamako, capital of Mali, to intervene in the crisis in the country but his intervention alongside that of other African leaders did not yield the desired result as the military seized power from President Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta.

Before the coronavirus outbreak, the president went on medical trips to the UK.

In 2017, he spent over 100 days in London, treating an undisclosed ailment.

This had sparked a nationwide outrage as his critics asked him to step down.

Buhari’s latest trip comes at a time when the National Association of Resident Doctors threatened an indefinite strike over poor welfare.
