JUST IN: Buhari Arrives Nigeria After 'Technical Stopover' In London

Hope Uzodimma has applauded President Muhammadu Buhari for what he described as "a successful official visit to the United States (US) during which he brilliantly marketed Nigeria, raised hope of more US investments to the Country and secured assurances of better bilateral relations".

"And lastly God will punish President Muhammadu Buhari because never has Nigeria had a sitting President or Head of State jumping over the bother line of decency and democratic values engaging bad language to pour vituperations and evil wishes on their wives, the youths of the country and our past leaders". Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity Garba Shehu told local media stations that his aircraft was forced to make "a technical stop".

But, reports in Nigeria said on Thursday the plane carrying Mr. Buhari changed its flight path and went to London where the Nigerian leader spent much of previous year treating himself for an undisclosed ailment.

What he saidThe big jet is under fix. It has been taken for major repairs. "The technical stop-over I talked about is that the journey from U.S. to Abuja is broken into two", Mr Shehu added.

"It is a routine thing".

He noted that the procedure was normal and that the President was already on his way back to Nigeria.

Against this backdrop, Shehu said the journey had to be broken into two with a stopover in London to create room for the necessary checks on the plane before proceeding to Nigeria.

No wonder the Buhari government, as Vice President Osinbajo has said repeatedly, is doing much more with the nation's financial resources, despite the declining income.

"Nigeria has a reputation for very massive corruption".

"I stand with you the no 1 African president".

Buhari, who travelled to the United States for a meeting with President Donald Trump, had left Washington, D.C. on Tuesday after the Monday meeting.
