Buhari Transfers Power To Osinbajo | Embarks On 10-Day Holiday In London

President Muhammadu Buhari will proceed on a 10-day holiday to London on Friday, August 3, the president’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina has disclosed on Wednesday.

He said Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo will be in charge of the country during the period.

Adesina said the president had informed the leadership of the national assembly about his trip.

Using the official Twitter handle (@NGRPresident), he wrote: 

“President @MBuhari begins a 10-working-days holiday from August 3, 2018.

” In compliance with Section 145 (1) of the 1999 Constitution, a letter has been transmitted to the President of the Senate, and the Speaker, House of Representatives to that effect.

“While the President is on vacation, Vice President @ProfOsinbajo will be in acting capacity as President.

” President Buhari will be in London for the holiday.”

Last year, Nigeria’s supreme leader spent a total of 152 days in London in the course of medical treatment.

His absence sparked speculations about his health but when he returned, Buhari said he was prepared to continue doing the job Nigerians elected him to do.
