Osinbajo takes salute as he jet out

Ahead of Federal Executive Council meeting schedule for Wednesday, Acting President Yemi Osinbajo Tuesday afternoon left Abuja for London to meet with ailing President Muhammadu Buhari.

Buhari, who has been on medical vacation in London in the last 60 days, it was learnt had asked Osinbajo to see him ahead of Wednesday meeting.

Senior Media Aide to the Acting President, Laolu Akande, confirmed this on his Twitter handle @akandeoj.

He however said Mr. Osinbajo will return to Abuja after the meeting, apparently to be able to preside over the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting on Wednesday.

“AgP Osinbajo meeting with President Buhari in London today, and returning to Abuja immediately afterwards,” Akande tweeted.

BigPen Online recalls that Mr. Buhari returned to the United Kingdom in May, exactly 57 days after he returned from his first medical vacation during which he spent 49 days in London.

While leaving on Sunday, May 7, President Buhari, in a letter to the National Assembly said he would remain in London indefinitely, asking his Vice, Mr Osinbajo, to coordinate the affairs of government in acting capacity.
