Buhari in London: Osibanjo to coordinate, not ‘acting’

The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osibanjo is to coordinate the activities of the Federal Government pending the return of President Muhammadu Buhari, reports ITRealms.

This was contained in President Buhari’s letter to the President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki and dated May 5, 2017.

The letter received by Saraki on Monday May 8, 2017 and leaked to ITRealms with the subject line on “Medical Follow-Up”.

According to Buhari, the letter was in compliance with Section 145 (1) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended), hence he wished to inform the distinguished Senate that he will be away for a secluded medical follow-up with his doctors in London.

“The length of my stay will be determined by the doctor’s advice,” Buhari said.

In addition, Buhari said that while he is away, that the “Vice President will coordinate the activities of the government,” he stated.

Already, many Nigerian industry watchers said the letter negates the constitution of the country as it was not explicit on the role of Prof. Osibanjo.

They equally argued that there is no place like “coordinate the activities of the government” other than expressly handing over the saddle of leadership to Vice President.

Others said the letter was a mischief by some cabal in the presdiency.
