Authorities from the presidency have confirmed that President Muhammadu Buhari is set to undergo surgery for the removal of a mass in his body believed to be cancerous at Royal Brompton Hospital at Sydney St, London SW3 6NP, United Kingdom

Source confirmed that the president did not hand over leadership to his vice, Yemi Osinbajo, even though the procedure will keep him (Buhari) away for at least two weeks in removing the mass in medicine which is a lump in the body, mainly caused by the abnormal growth of cells, a cyst, hormonal changes, or an immune reaction.

A Presidential source on Monday told IsL source that Buhari is expected to undergo a complicated surgical procedure in the UK hospital to take out the tumour and some of the healthy tissues near it.

“Our principal, President Buhari is to undergo a complicated surgical procedure in the UK. Meanwhile, the procedure is more complicated than being revealed by Femi Adesina and other presidential aides,” the presidential source said.

“It is a procedure to remove a mass inside his body believed to be cancerous, and it will be done at Royal Brompton Hospital.

“He will be gone for two weeks but could stay longer. He had earlier pushed the treatment till further notice but his doctors warned him to do it now or die. Unfortunately, he refused to hand over to Vice President Osinbajo as usual.”

“Buhari will proceed to London where he is scheduled to undergo a medical procedure at the Royal Brompton Hospital situated at Sydney St, London SW3 6NP, between November 1 and 2, 2022.”

Confirming the report on Monday, the Special Adviser to President Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, on his Twitter account said the President would be going for a medical checkup in London and would be back in Nigeria in the second week of November.

Adesina said, “President Buhari leaves for London October 31, 2022, for routine medical checkup. He returns to the country 2nd week of November, 2022.”

IsL had earlier reported that despite the rising tension and apprehension in the country, especially in Abuja over the terror alerts issued by the US, UK and Canadian commissions, the president is unrepentant about the medical trip
