Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari

Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari will spend three months working from home after his office was damaged by rats.

Mr Buhari has just returned from three months in the United Kingdom last Saturday amid widespread concerns over his health.

Government spokesman Garba Shehu, however, said the office required renovation after damage was done to the furniture and air conditioning in his absence.

He added that the president has a well-equipped office at home that he could work from.

Many users of Nigerian social media have cast doubt on the reason given for Mr Buhari working from home.
