Former military Head of State and presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), General Mohammadu Buhari has revealed that he went to the UK to rest which negates the claims by the APC that he went on a working visit.
General Buhari who returned to Nigeria on Friday, March 6, 2015 after about two weeks abroad in company of his family members and party officials at about 5:40 am dismissed claims that he was not in the best state of health.
Answering questions from journalists at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport as to whether he went to the UK for medical reasons, General Buhari said: “I just went off for a couple of weeks to rest. That’s all I did.”
Further quizzed on whether he visited the hospital in the UK, he said: “What is wrong for me to go to the hospital? Am I not here now? Aren’t you seeing me? Are you seeing a sick man?”
