Osinbajo: Buhari to Extend Stay in UK
President Mohammadu Buhari will not return to Nigeria after his 10-day medical vacation in the UK expired Thursday. He would extend his stay in order to recuperate fully, Vice-President, Yomi Osinbajo, has said.
Osinbajo spoke before the commencement of the meeting of the National Economic Council in Abuja.
He said he spoke with the President on telephone and he was in good health.
“I think the most straightforward thing is when he will be back. He will be back on Sunday. There is no point rushing back on Friday or something like that.
“He will just take the weekend off and be back on Sunday. He is in perfect health and ready to resume work on Monday morning.
“The President will be back on Sunday. I spoke with him yesterday evening and I think it is just the best that he takes the weekend off. He will certainly be back on Sunday.
“Mr. President is in good condition, he is fine, he is very well. He should take a day or two off in London and rest a bit and come back hale and hearty on Sunday and be ready for work on Monday. So we expect him back on Sunday.”
The President had so far embarked on vacation two times this year”, he said.
President Buhari is in UK to treat a “persistent ear infection”. His vacation in UK is the second since he assumed office last year.
Before his departure, he had communicated the National Assembly, handing over the power to the Vice-President.
