Buhari Will Run Nigeria From London Hospital, Osinbajo Not In Charge – Presidency Says

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday generated yet another round of controversy over his medical trip to the UK, failing to hand over power to his vice president in an apparent disregard of the Nigerian Constitution fueling fresh concerns that he had failed to learn from past controversies over similar trips.

Presidential media aide Garba Shehu said it was “not warranted” for president Buhari to transmit power even though his principal travelled to the UK for medical reasons.“He (Buhari) will continue from wherever he is,” Mr Shehu said during an appearance on Channels TV Tuesday.

Garba Shehu insisted that no laws were broken by not transferring temporary powers to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in the president’s absence, adding that president Buhari is expected back in the country in the second week of April.
