In a report on the short vacation announced yesterday evening by the Presidency, Saturday PUNCH said it “learnt on Friday that Buhari may use the opportunity of the short holiday to undergo medical check-up in London, United Kingdom.”

Buhari, 73, is currently in London where he attended Supporting Syria and the Region conference on Thursday. He left Nigeria on Tuesday for France, where he addressed the parliament of the European Union.

Rather than Buhari returning to the country this weekend as indicated by his itinerary released earlier in the week, a short statement just issued in Abuja by Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity) Femi Adesina said:

“President Muhammadu Buhari has begun a short vacation from today, February 5 to February 10, 2016.

“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.”
