Mr Shehu said the doctor requested "the president to return for a meeting which he agreed to do."

"President Buhari will return on Saturday, May 12th," he said.

He also said on his return, the president's two-day State Visit to Jigawa, which was postponed because of the All Progressives Congress, ward congresses, will now take place on Monday and Tuesday next week.
