I have transmuted power to Osinbajo as I leave for medical check up in London, says Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari said he has transmuted power to his Vice, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, to be in charge of governance in the country as he departed for London on Sunday for another round of medical checks.

Penpushing reports that, Buhari made this known while speaking to State House Correspondents shortly before his trip to the United Kingdom, explaining that  Osinbajo would be assisted by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha and the Chief of Staff.

The President assured that his absence from the country would not affect the running of the government, adding that he cannot claim to be doing the work alone, stressing that his Vice would fully represent him.

”Well, I cannot claim to be doing the work alone. The government is fully represented – the Vice President is there, constitutionally when I am away he is in charge; and the Secretary to the government and the Chief of Staff. So, no problem”, he stated

Penpushing further reports that, it is recalled that, Buhari had earlier planned to leave Kenya directly for London after attending a UNEP programme but made a detour to the country before, he left for London on Sunday.

Meanwhile, as at the time of filing this report, it was not clear if the Buhari sent  a letter to the Senate indicating the transfer of power to his Vice, in his absence in the country, which is the constitutional thing to do.
