Buhari departs on a two-week medical trip to London

Buhari departs on a two-week medical trip to London in the middle of a severe fuel shortage.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity Femi Adesina has disclosed that Muhammadu Buhari is set to undergo another medical examination in London

According to Femi, Buhari will leave Abuja on Tuesday for a three-day official visit to Nairobi, Kenya, after which he will travel to London for normal medical examinations that will take two weeks.

In his word, Buhari will honor an invitation extended to him by his Kenyan counterpart, Uhuru Kenyatta, to attend the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) with the theme “Strengthening UNEP for the implementation of the environmental dimension of the 2030 agenda for sustainable development” scheduled for March 3 to 4 in Nairobi, Kenya.

At the event, Buhari will deliver Nigeria’s National Statement and take part in High-Level Dialogue Sessions on the Environment.

Buhari’s latest medical journey arises as Nigerians struggle to make ends meet due to a severe shortage of premium motor spirit (PMS), also known as petrol.

Buhari is the formal minister of petroleum resources, a position that puts him directly responsible for the country’s energy issue.

The majority of filling stations in major Nigerian cities do not dispense petrol, and the ones that do sell the commodity have long lines, forcing Nigerians to rely on the illicit market for fuel.

Economic activity in Nigeria’s major cities has been devastated as a result of the development.

After tainted fuel was brought into the country, the present fuel shortage began.

Under the subsidy arrangement, the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC), a key branch of Buhari’s Ministry of Petroleum Resources, is the country’s sole importer of PMS.

Despite the fact that the responsibility rests on him, Buhari, as minister of petroleum resources, has failed to propose any solutions to the severe fuel crisis that has caused millions of Nigerians to suffer.

Instead, the president will be in London while Nigerians continue to suffer from the effects of the petroleum shortage.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has said multiple times that there is enough fuel to suit the demands of Nigerians.

Despite the guarantees of the national oil company, the scarcity has persisted.
