Abuja, Nigeria – In a gripping account disclosed in Femi Adesina’s latest book, ‘Working with Buhari: Reflections of a Special Adviser, Media and Publicity (2015-2023),’ it has been unveiled that former Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari narrowly escaped a plane crash in November 2015.

The incident occurred just six months into his presidential term as he and his aides were en route to Malta for a meeting of the Commonwealth Heads of Government.

The book recounts the harrowing experience of severe turbulence that plagued Buhari’s presidential jet during the approach to Malta. The turbulence was so intense that upon landing, a visibly shaken President Buhari questioned the pilot, demanding an explanation for the unsettling landing.

“What kind of landing is this?” President Buhari reportedly asked, prompting the pilot to swiftly apologize to the president and other alarmed passengers. The pilot explained that they had encountered wind shear, a sudden and drastic change in wind direction, leading to the tumultuous landing.

Chapter 21 of Adesina’s book, titled “Over 50 foreign trips… and a health scare,” provides insight into Buhari’s extensive international travels during his eight-year presidency. The former president visited a staggering 94 countries officially, with peak travel years recorded as 2016, 2022, 2015, and 2018, accumulating a notable total of 19, 18, 16, and 12 trips respectively.
