The medical trip is coming just three  months after the President went on the same mission to Saudi Arabia. He was also there about a year before then.

Meanwhile, before leaving for the Arabian Kingdom, the President forwarded copies of the 2010 National Appropriation Bill to the Senate President and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, as against his earlier plan to physically read the budget to a joint session of the National Assembly.

The President, the statement added, however wished the Muslim Ummah and all Nigerians happy Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.
