On Friday, he had tweeted that “PMB will Monday transmit letter to N’Assembly on his return to the country. That makes his return to work formal, and constitutional.”

The disclosure might have dismissed speculations and media reports that Buhari had asked Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to continue as acting president.

On January 19, the President transmitted a letter to the National Assembly informing them of his 10days vacation in London.

He also transmitted the powers of his office to his Vice, according to the provisions of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).

Buhari however failed to return after the 10 days which elapsed on February 6. He later wrote another letter to the Parliament, extending his leave, informing them of his doctors’ advice to stay put abroad and run a series of medical tests.

On Friday, the President returned to the country after spending 51 days in the United Kingdom to attend to his health.
