President Muhammadu Buhari’s media aide Femi Adesina says his principal has the right to use his time the way he wants.
But Adesina said people were free to interpret Buhari’s trip however they want.
“Those who want to interpret everything, those who want to believe all things should just believe that it is a private trip,” he told Channels TV.
“When a man goes on a private trip, he has the right to use his time the way he deems because he has the right to private time.
“So those who want to believe it’s a medical trip, they have the right to believe, if it pleases them and makes them happier.”
He added that “President Buhari has since the last weekend in December when he launched the presidential campaign, all through till February he was on campaign stuff around the country.
“Elections came and a lot of people expected that immediately after the elections, he will travel out to rest or attend to his health, but we see two months after the elections, the President was working vigorously.”
Buhari is expected to spend 10 days in the UK and return to Nigeria on May 5.
