The Presidency, has on Tuesday night, stated that it is very unnecessary for President Muhammadu Buhari to handover power to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, before going to London, United Kingdom, for his two weeks Medical trip,
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, stated this when he featured as a Guest on Channels Television’s ‘Politics Today’.
He explained that President Buhari has not contravened the laws of the land, by not transmitting power to Vice President Osinbajo, while away in London.
Shehu said when asked if the President had transferred duties to the Vice President.: “He (Buhari) will continue from wherever he is.
“The requirement of the law is that the President is going to be absent in the country for 21 days and more, then that transmission is warranted. In this particular instance, it is not warranted.”
The President is expected back in the country, in the second week of April.
