The former Head of State's warning is coming at a time the Senate was considering an impeachment motion against President Muhammadu Buhari over the purchase of $496 million Tucano aircraft from the United States, without legislative approval.

Meanwhile, President Buhari is said to have had "a technical stop" over in London, on his way back to the country.

President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to return to the country on Thursday evening, said his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina.

He said this was because Buhari flew in a smaller aircraft than the one he used to travel with, adding that the bigger aircraft had gone for checks.

During the meeting, President Buhari again blamed the killings in some parts of Nigeria by suspected herdsmen on armed men from Libya.

He explained "The big jet is under fix". It has been taken for major repairs.

He noted that the procedure was normal and that the President was already on his way back to Nigeria. President Buhari had on Tuesday left the United States, where he had an embarrassing and fruitless outing and instead of returning to the country, detoured to the UK for another private visit without regard to full disclosure requirements of our constitution and laws.

Buhari said on his return to Nigeria from London previous year that he "had never been so sick" and had undergone blood transfusions.

"The Presidency must understand that President Buhari is not a private citizen and as long as his upkeep and itinerary is sourced from our hard-earned resources, there must be full disclosure, as citizens deserve to know the objective of the visit and the cost to our nation", the PDP said. When local media questioned presidential spokespeople over Buhari's whereabouts, none of them provided a response.
