President Muhammadu Buhari has denied having a house in the United Kingdom.
In a video posted by his Special Assistant on Digital Media, Tolu Ogunlesi, on Twitter, on Thursday, the president said he told King Charles III during a meeting with the monarch that he has no house in the UK.
Buhari added that he was comfortable without assets scattered across the world.
He said: “When he (King Charles III) asked me whether I have a house here (UK), I said no, even in Nigeria, the ones I have are those ones I built before I got into government.

“I am not very much interested in having assets all over the place. I feel freer when I have nothing.”
President Buhari has traveled to the UK for medical check-ups at least 14 times since he assumed office in 2015.
During their chat yesterday, King Charles III asked President Buhari if he has a house in the UK.
