Osinbajo takes over, as Buhari goes on vacation

President Mohammadu Buhari and Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo

President Muhammadu Buhari has handed over reign of power to the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.

This follows the beginning of his short vacation starting today, February 5. He will be away till 10 February.

A statement on Friday by the Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity), Femi Adesina, said, “While President Buhari is on vacation, the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo will perform the functions of the President.

“In compliance with Section 145 (1) of the Nigerian Constitution, President Buhari has dispatched a formal notice of his vacation to the Senate President and the Speaker of the House of Representatives.”

Though Adesina, in his statement, did not indicate where the president would spend the five days, it is presumed he is staying back in London, where he attended Thursday a summit on Syria.


President Buhari left Nigeria on Wednesday for France, where he addressed the EU Parliament in Strasbourg and the United Kingdom, where he attended a summit on Syria. He was scheduled to return to Nigeria at the weekend.

Before he left Nigeria, BUhari had a busy three-day working session, capped with a two-day visit to Ogun state, where he commissioned some of the projects of Governor Ibikunle Amosun, to mark the 40th anniversary of Ogun state.
