Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, left Abuja yesterday evening to attend a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in London, the United Kingdom.
Osinbajo’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, tweeted the acting president’s departure to London, on his Twitter handle @akandeoj at 7:34pm.
“AgP Osinbajo meeting with President Buhari in London, today, and returning to Abuja, immediately afterwards.”
Osinbajo jetted out soon after presiding over the Quarterly Presidential Business Forum yesterday morning, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Akande had initially denied the trip when he realised State House Correspondents had got wind of the acting president’s trip.
He gave the newsmen a decoy and informed them Osinbajo would only be traveling to Lagos after the event.
Akande would eventually disclose the acting president’s actual destination in a tweet yesterday evening, although he declined to disclose details of the London meeting.
Daily Sun, however, gathered that the acting president is expected to preside over today’s Federal Executive Council meeting.
Buhari left the country on May 7, 2017, and has been away for more than 65 days, attending to his health in London.
He similarly left for medicals on January 19, 2017.
His wife, Aisha, had visited him on May 30 and returned a week later, on June 6, 2017.
Mrs. Buhari, however, returned to London on Tuesday July 3, after attending a meeting of the Organisation of African First Ladies against HIV/AIDS (OAFLA) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
But, on Monday, July 10, on her Facebook page, the First lady hinted that her husband is recovering and would possibly return home soon.
