The Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari, has returned from the United Kingdom where he went on a two weeks medical vacation.
You could recall that the president left the country on April 1st, 2021 not because he was sick, but for his routine medical checkup.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, had said;
“It is a routine medical check-up; the President has undertaken this with a set of doctors that he has retained over many years”.
He further explained that the president did not transmit power to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, noting that the President will not be away for so long to contravene the law.
“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”.
