Since then, he has met with another delegation of Nigerian governors, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, as well as the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.


The First Lady, Aisha Buhari travelled to London to meet the president on Sunday, August 6 ahead of what is considered to be his imminent return.

The president and his team have insisted that his return is imminent, but there has been no confirmed date.
