It was initially announced that Buhari will return from his four-day medical trip on Saturday, but if the information by the APC-UK is anything to go by, the President could be home by Friday evening.
The distance from the UK to Nigeria is approximately six hours.
The APC national elective congress holds on Saturday, and perhaps the President want to arrive in good time to be able to attend.
