Mr Adesina also stated that the president should stay with the same team since they know past details about his health.
“It is advisable that he continues with those who know his medical history and that is why he comes to London to see them. He has used the same medical team for over 40 years. Once you can afford it, then stay with the team that has your history,”
On Monday, President Buhari left Nigeria for the UK, where he is going to be attending an education summit.
After the summit, the president will pay a visit to his doctors for a medical check-up.
