“President Buhari has since the last weekend in December when he launched the presidential campaign, all through till February he was on campaign stuff around the country.

“Elections came and a lot of people expected that immediately after the elections, he will travel out to rest or attend to his health, but we see two months after the elections, the President was working vigorously,” he added.

Buhari is expected to spend 10 days in the UK and return to Nigeria on May 5.
