President Goodluck Jonathan and Babangida In London Hospitals

According to SaharaReporters, an intestinal disorder referred to as Amoebic Colitis has forced President Jonathan to cancel a planned surprise visit to the Super Eagles in South Africa, medical sources in London said today.

The Nigeria president, who is on a whirlwind three-nation trip to Egypt, the United Kingdom and France, had planned to surprise the Super Eagles in South Africa following their qualification for the final of the African Cup of Nations last Wednesday.
While on the other hand, former Nigerian dictator Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida was also sighted at the InterContinental Hotel in London limping on one leg. Mr. Babangida was helped into a vehicle by two aides on his way to a hospital in the city.
 It was not clear if President Jonathan previously knew of Babangida's stay at the same hotel but the two met briefly as Babangida struggled to get to his car.
A medical source told Saharareporters that Mr. Jonathan's situation is not worrisome and he has undergone testing at the London Clinic on Harley Street. The clinic is highly favoured by Nigeria’s rich and powerful.
Mr. Jonathan is expected to arrive in France on Monday, according to his itinerary, but it is unclear if his health issue will force a change.  Mr. Jonathan’s wife, Patience, last month returned to hospital in Germany following new health concerns. 

The president has detailed the Senate President, David Mark, to cheer on the Super Eagles to victory in their final match against Burkina Faso tomorrow.

A presidency source said the President plans a massive reception for the Super Eagles in Abuja on Tuesday night.
