Buhari on the mend

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

ABUJA: Nige­ria’s Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari will re­turn to his of­fi­cial du­ties as soon as doc­tors ad­vise that he can end his med­i­cal leave, the pres­i­dency said yes­ter­day.

Amid con­flict­ing re­ports on the health of the 74-year-old pres­i­dent, his of­fice re­leased a pho­to­graph on Sun­day – the first for al­most three months – show­ing a smil­ing Buhari look­ing less gaunt than when he was last seen on tele­vi­sion in Nige­ria.

Buhari left Abuja for Lon­don on May 7 for treat­ment of an un­spec­i­fied ill­ness, his sec­ond trip abroad this year for health rea­sons. The first trip, also to Lon­don, lasted two months and sev­eral pho­tos of him were pub­lished. Reuters
