President Muhammadu Buhari will, on January 23, travel to the United Kingdom for a medical visit.
Buhari announced his plans to take a 10-day leave on Thursday, January 19, via a letter to the Senate.
“In compliance with Section 145 (1) of the 1999 constitution as amended, I wish to inform the Distinguished Senate that I will be away on a short medical vacation from Monday January, 23 to February 6th, 2017 and while I am away, the Vice President (Osinbajo) will perform the functions of my office,” the letter read.
The president’s decision has however angered Nigerians who believe that the move is insensitive in light of the current problems facing the country.
