The Vanguard newspaper has reported that Nigeria’s President, Goodluck Jonathan, received unplanned medical treatment in London on Thursday after he “became indisposed” and was forced to miss a scheduled meeting, his spokesman said.
In a statement released by Special Adviser on Media affairs, Dr. Ruben Abati, he said, “In the course of his ongoing visit to London for a meeting of Nigeria’s Honorary International Investors’ Council, President Goodluck Jonathan became indisposed and could not be present at the opening of the meeting today,”
“President Jonathan has since been examined by competent medical practitioners. He has been advised to rest for a few days.”
Abati added in an emailed statement that the president’s condition was “nothing serious and that the medical attention he has sought is only precautionary”.
