BBC Africa has made quite a spectacle of President Muhammadu Buhari's medical trip to London, in an episode of Focus on Africa's 'Residents Presidents'. 

The characters, Kibarkingmad and Olushambles, were heard in a dialogue making a mockery of the president's visit to London to check his ear.


According to the audio clip, Buhari had promised to end what was termed as 'medical tourism', when he assumed his role as the leader of the country.

Kibarkingmad and Olushambles were of the belief that African should make conscious efforts to improve its medical institution, so that such visits will no longer occur.

This coincided with the period when Buhari embarked on his London medical trip.
