President Buhari is off on another medical trip to London
This time, the trip will last only four days and the President has promised to be back in Abuja by Saturday, May 12.
According to his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, this urgent meeting with the doctor was scheduled during last week’s ‘technical stopover’ in London.
I will be traveling to the United Kingdom tomorrow, to see my doctor, at his request. Will be away for four days; back in Abuja on Saturday, May 12.

This medical trip comes eight months after his last elongated trip that lasted 104 days.
Because Nigerians are tired of a ‘Diasporan’ president, here’s how they took the news of the trip:
Buhari is a UK resident who works offshore in Nigeria. https://t.co/HpaxHlG1OF

Buhari was aware of his health condition even b4 he became President. THREE YEARS as President and he’s been unable to atleast upgrade Aso rock clinic with equipments & personnel needed to manage his ailment?
Buhari is also a victim of his own incompetence.

Buhari sounds like a 200 Level Babe deceiving her parents so she can spend the weekend at 1k4 and Quilox https://t.co/rFOdjkTAO3

For someone that screams local content. Buhari couldn’t invest in just one hospital just to treat himself locally. Says everything about his entire 3 years in charge

DJ Cuppy really has a way of ‘tensioning’ the rest of us
Being a billionaire’s daughter in these parts comes with a truckload of perks but things get awkward when you’re also famous in your own rights.
For DJ Cuppy, the billionaire’s daughter/celebrity lifestyle is what she knows best and it may take some time for the rest of us to fully comprehend it.
She tweeted today:
Why is it so hot in London 😩 I left Lagos to catch small breeze! 💨#bankholidaysunshine

Left Lagos to “catch small breeze”? TwitterNG is not having any of that and this user speaks our minds:
Father Lord, may I reach the level where I will travel to another continent to catch small breeze instead of using my Dunlop slippers to fan myself 😭🙏 https://t.co/tVnlqjdE1P
