Buhari Writes National Assembly, Resumes Work Tomorrow
President Muhammadu Buhari will tomorrow write the leaderships of the two chambers of the National Assembly to formally notify them of his return to the country from London, United Kingdom. Also, the President will resume his official duties.
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina confirmed the resumption via the social media network “Twitter”.
“PMB will Monday transmit letter to N’Assembly on his return to the country. That makes his return to work formal, and constitutional,” he twitted
President Buhari on January 19 transmitted a letter to the National Assembly informing them of his 10 days vacation in London. He also transmitted the powers of his office to his Vice, Professor Yemi Osinbajo according to the provisions of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).
The President however did not return after the 10 days which elapsed on February 6. He later wrote another letter to the Parliament, extending his leave, informing them of his doctors’ advise to stay put abroad and run a series of medical tests.
The extension was indefinite as no date of his return was given. The President however returned to the country last week Friday after spending 51 days in the United Kingdom to attend to his health.
