Lauretta Onochie, an aide to President Muhammadu Buhari, has said it is the right of her principal to see his personal doctors.
There has been a series of protests at the Abuja House in London where Buhari is lodged.
More protests are being planned, in a bid to force Buhari to go have his medical checkup in Nigeria where doctors are currently on strike.
In an apparent reaction, Onochie disclosed that no amount of wailing can stop Buhari from embarking on medical trips which he has been doing for years.
She tweeted, “Next year, Pres. @MBuhari will go for a routine checkup
“We have been here since 2016. It’s been the same wailing. So the response will also be the same.
“At least, once a year, people across the world see their personal doctors especially one they have seen for about 40 years.
“@MBuhari won’t dump his doctor of about 40 years so that wailers can be happy. That’s blackmail. Thankfully, he doesn’t pay blackmailers.
“In 2016, I ran from one media house to the other, educating us on the psychology of the bond between a patient & his/her long-standing doctor
“He went for #CheckUp in 2017, 2018, 2019 & in 2020, just before the pandemic. Same wailing and same explanations.
“The fact remains that if @MBuhari chooses, he will go for checkups in 2022 & 2023. He will continue to go. It’s his choice to go or not to.
“I don’t know any man who will accept a different barber to cut his hair if the one he is used to, is not available
“Wailing cant take away his rights to see his personal doctors so wailers must get ready for two more years of wailing and fooling around. God bless Nigeria.”

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has added Anthony Elanga to his Europa League squad, ahead of Thursday's quarter-final clash against Granada.
Elanga only signed a new long-term contract with the Red Devils last month.
However, the highly-rated 18-year-old was spotted in training on Tuesday.
He will now fly to Spain with Solskjaer’s squad on Wednesday ahead of Thursday evening’s first-leg tie.
While Elanga is yet to feature for Manchester United’s first-team, he came on as a substitute during their pre-season friendly against Aston Villa last summer.

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has revealed details of his discussion with the referee Felix Brych, following their 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday night.
Klopp claims he told the referee he treated Sadio Mane ‘unfairly’ and appeared to have a ‘personal’ problem with the Senegal forward.
