A Federal high court in Abuja has rejected the apeal by a to gain grant access to President Buhari’s Medical Trip And Air-Craft Maintenance report

The ruling presided over by Judge, John Tsoho has rejected an application filed in by group challenging to gain access to information on the cost of President Muhammadu Buhari’s medical treatment abroad.
Judge, John Tsoho of the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court on Tuesday stated that Freedom of Information (FOI) Act does not permit the information to be made public without the consent of the president.
ASRADI, Advocacy for Societal Rights Advancement and Development Initiative, met with the Central Bank of Nigeria requesting access to Mr. President medical bills report abroad.
The Judge in response to their request stated that  Section 14 (1) (b) of the FOI Act did not provide for such a personal information to be revealed about the president, without his consent.
“In this instance, there is no evidence that the president consented or that the information was in public domain, hence this application.
“I hereby hold that the information sought by the applicant is exempted by virtue of section 14 (1) (b) of the Freedom of Information Act”.

Judge John Tsoho has also maintained that it's inappropriate for the applicants to question the decision of the respondents to forward the FOI to the presidency.
