President Muhammadu Buhari, who returned to Nigeria on Friday after medical leave, said he will leave his deputy in charge for the time being and not immediately resume power.
President Buhari admitted that he decided to return to Nigeria on Friday, so he can continue to rest over the weekend.
The 74-year-old said Vice President Yemi Osinbajo “will continue” in the role of acting-president “and I will continue to rest”.
While no timeline was given for how long Osinbajo would be in charge, President Buhari also hinted that he would be doing some follow-ups on his health in a few weeks.
For the period the President was away, as the Acting President, Osinbajo has earned plaudits from Nigerians for how he had handled the role.
However, the President told those who are planning to come and see him, to stay back and continue to pray for the country.
