General Muhammed Buhari is currently suffering some public relations disaster over his Friday trip to the United Kingdom.

No sooner had the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate left the country, supposedly on a political trip in which his campaign team claimed he would be giving a speech at the Chatham House, that the story emerged that the retired general was actually on a medical trip to the United Kingdom.

Mukhtar Alex Dan’Iyan, political strategist has been on this story exposing the details of Buhari’s UK trip including the name and address of the hospital where Buhari checked in as he arrived London on February 20, 2015. He suggests that the photo taken with Tony Blair was paid for and Blair’s reputation is destroyed.

Buhari was allegedly taken from the London Hospital to where he had the photo opportunity with former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair whom Dan’Iyan reports has an inconsequential political influence in the UK.

Dan’Iyan also went on to release a 22-tweet series on micro-blogging site, Twitter, on the Buhari medical trip saga. See them after the story.

The APC had released a photo of Buhari in a London Airport which Dan’Iyan quickly exposed as a 2013 photo and not 2015 photo.

All eyes remain on Buhari as he makes his fourth attempt at becoming president of Nigeria. A former military dictator, Buhari ran unsuccessfully for president in 2003 against General Olusegun Obasanjo, he ran again against late President Musa Yar’Adua and lost, and lost yet again against the incumbent, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan in 2011 who he would be facing again at the polls on March 28, 2015.
