President Muhammadu Buhari has returned to the country from his trip to his doctor in London. He needs to be honest with Nigerians to say he his unwell.

On Monday, the President announced his plan to travel to London to see his doctor on his Twitter handle, and a statement from the Presidency followed the tweet.

He said, "In the course of the technical stop-over for aircraft maintenance in London on his way back from Washington last week, the President had a meeting with his doctor".

President Buhari's health status has been of great concern to Nigerians as many see his regular medical trips as sign of major hindrance to his effective performance in office.

But the president's spokesman Garba Shehu told CNN Buhari was under no obligation to disclose his medical records.

President Buhari had to cut short his medical trip to the United Kingdom to arrive on Friday 11th May, instead of his initial arrival date of Saturday, May 12th.

The move stoked fresh doubts about the president's health and his ability to campaign for re-election at polls scheduled for February next year.

Buhari travelled to the United Kingdom on Tuesday and was expected to return on Saturday.
