Nigeria's Buhari 'ready to go home' after treatment in UK

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, who has been undergoing medical treatment in London for over three months, is now ready to return home.

In a statement, the African leader said he is awaiting his doctor’s permission.

“I feel I could go home, but the doctors are in charge,” Buhari said, adding, “I’ve now learnt to obey orders, rather than be obeyed.”

The nature of his illness has not been disclosed, with many at home questioning whether he is well enough to run the country.

Some protesters in Nigeria’s capital Abuja have even demanded his resignation this week.
