President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived Abuja after a two-week trip to the United Kingdom.

He touched down at the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport at about 18:45 pm on Friday.

The President travelled to attend the Global Partnership for Education organised Global Education Summit before undergoing a scheduled medical check-up.

The President departed Nigeria for the United Kingdom on July 26 to participate in the Global Education Summit on Financing Global Partnership for Education 2021-2025.

His media aide, Femi Adesina had issued a statement suggesting that after the event, President Buhari would spend a few days in the United Kingdom for an earlier scheduled medical check-up.

In the weeks he spent in the UK, the president met and played host to various dignitaries including the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson who assured that the UK is available to assist Nigeria in its war against terrorism.

One other very significant meeting was that of Buhari and a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress  Bola Tinubu in London.

Its import is occasioned by the recent crisis rocking the ruling All Progressives Congress where some aggrieved members are seeking to oust the caretaker national leadership of the APC, led by Mai Mala Buni.

President Buhari had reportedly asked Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to intervene in the matter.

Also prior to their brief get-together, Tinubu had been away from the country for some undisclosed reasons, stirring speculations about his health.
