The President's Letter And The Constitution by AntiWailer: 9:12am On May 10, 2017
Section 145 :
‘Whenever the President is proceeding on vacation or is otherwise unable to discharge the functions of his office, he shall transmit a written declaration to the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives to that effect, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, the Vice President SHALL perform the functions of the President as Acting President.’


Buhari cited that section of the constitution amd transmitted a letter

The section does not even empower him to mention anybody as acting President if not he could have nominated his wife or mentioned any other person.

As soon as that letter was read on the floor, the VP becomes the acting President AUTOMATICALLY until another letter comes in tindicating that the President is back.

The reason Jonathan had issues was because such letter does not exist and it led to a constituional crisis hence DOCTRINE of NECESSITY was invoked to be able to recognise the then VP as Acting President.


STOP looking for trouble where none exist.

When you mix hatred, mediocrity, ignorance and sentiments together, we will not know how to help you.

Pending the time we know what the problem is, we will assume it is just a combination of ignorance and mediocrity.


As you type remember the Vice president is a Professor OF Law and not a RIFF RAFF politician like FFK so don't hide under interpretation of the constitution without stating your interpretation.

Section 145 and section 146 is crystal clear. Visible to the blind and audible to the deaf.
