President Buhari Departs Abuja On Medical Vacation, Hands Over To VP Osinbajo
President Muhammadu Buhari has abruptly left Abuja on a medical visit to the United Kingdom a few minutes after sending a letter to the Senate requesting for a 10-day leave.
A letter read at the plenary of the Senate on Tuesday had claimed the President was going on leave starting from Monday, January 23, 2017, but aides to the President were abruptly summoned to the airport today to see the President off sparking general concern that the president might be sick.
SaharaReporters had reported last year that President Buhari would be attending to medical issues in the UK that would require a long stay in the hospital.
