Doctors will determine how long I’ll be away – Buhari tells Senate

President Muhammadu Buhari has informed the Senate that his length of stay in the United Kingdom will be determined by his doctors.

The President said this in a letter to the Senate, informing the lawmakers of his trip to London to see his doctors for further medical attention.

Senate President Bukola Saraki read the letter during plenary on Tuesday, two days after President Buhari jetted out of the country.

In the letter, the President informed the lawmakers that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo would coordinate the affairs of the country in his absence.

Senator Ohuabunwa Mao (Abia-North), however, raised a point of order, saying that there was nothing like coordinating vice president as contained in the President’s letter.

Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan countered his claim, arguing that the letter followed due process and should not give rise to any complaint.

The Senate President subsequently ruled Senator Ohuabunwa out of order.

President Buhari had travelled out of the country on Sunday night, a few hours after meeting with the 82 Chibok schoolgirls that were released on Saturday.
