Nigeria President's Health Improved `Tremendously,' Speaker Says

(Bloomberg) -- The health of Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, who is receiving treatment in London since May for an undisclosed ailment, has improved significantly, said Yakubu Dogara, speaker of the House of Representatives.

“I am glad that he is doing well; his health has improved tremendously,” Dogara said on Twitter, reporting that he visited Buhari in London with President of the Senate Bukola Saraki.

Buhari, who was elected in 2015, is on his second medical trip to the U.K. trip this year, with his absence fueling concerns about his ability to see through the rest of his first term that ends in 2019.
