Presidency says Buhari will govern from any where

Nigerians have been informed by the presidency that President Muhammadu Buhari will govern the country from wherever he is, insisting that it unnecessary for him to transmit power to the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo

The President departed Nigeria for London, the United Kingdom on Tuesday for what the Presidency described as a routine medical checkup.

He will spend a minimum of two weeks in the United Kingdom and many Nigerians were concerned about him not transmitting power to Osinbajo.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, while appearing on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Tuesday’s edition, explained that Buhari has not contravened the laws of the land by not transmitting power to his deputy.

According to him, “He (Buhari) will continue from wherever he is,” Shehu said when asked if the President had transferred duties to the vice president.

“The requirement of the law is that if the President is going to be absent in the country for 21 days and more, then that transmission is warranted. In this particular instance, it is not warranted.”
