Muhammadu Buhari, the president of Nigeria is currently in the United Kingdom where he is attending the UK-Africa Investment Summit which started yesterday January 20th.
Naija News recalls the president departed the shores of Nigeria on Friday, 17th January for the event and is expected back in the country on Thursday, 23rd January according to his media team.
On Monday, members of the Royal family led by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, and Princess Kate, hosted a cross-section of African leaders who are in the UK for the summit, to a dinner reception.
However, President Buhari was noticeably absent at the dinner, a development which has not gone unnoticed by Nigerians. He was represented by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffery Onyeama.
Reacting to the development, Nigerians have taken to Twitter to ask why their president was not in attendance at the dinner. Some even insinuated Mr. Buhari might have used the opportunity of being in the UK to do a quick medical check-up.
