Following President Buhari’s embarkment on a short medial-related vacation, Nigeria’s Vice President Professor Yemi Osnbajo has been signed in as the temporary Acting President of the Federal Republic, and in absolute charge of all affairs of running the nation.
This was contained in a statement by Femi Adesina, special Adviser media, “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.”
President Buhari is believed to be headed for England to see his doctors. It is strongly believed that as with most men of his age, he suffers from typical and common prostate hypertrophic or similar issues.
It is noted that unlike clueless Jonathan in the time of Yar’Adua, and lawn-tennis busy, Namadi Sambo, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is a most efficient hand who already has been in charge of running most sectors of the nation and economy, while President Buhari has faced the war on terror and the nation’s international public image.
