Buhari’s Medical Trip: Transmitting Power To VP Unnecessary – Garba Shehu by Ctorch: 8:23am On Apr 01
…Says there’s no emergency to President’s trip

The Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity to the President, Mallam Garba Shehu, said yesterday that President Muhammadu Buhari’s trip to London for medical checks does not warrant transmitting power to his vice, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, since he was staying for just two weeks.

He also berated naysayers over insinuations that his principal embarked on emergency medical trip to the UK.

Speaking in a monitored programme on Channels Television, ‘Politics Today’ yesterday, Garba said: “Before he left, he just finished a meeting with security chiefs. He had excellent chat with the vice president, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Chief of Staff, so he has taken it all around. If it is warranted that he signs documents, these are transmissible by wire, the internet is there and the president is equally internet savvy, therefore, work can continue without any obstruction from whichever location he is.

He will continue from wherever he is. The requirement of the law is if the President is going to be absent for 21days or more, then the transmission is warranted. So in this particular case, the president is staying for only two weeks.”

On the trip. he said: “It is a medical trip, and there is absolutely no urgency or emergency. The president is not in any sick condition. It’s a routine medical checkup. The president has overtaken this with a set of doctors that he has known over many years.

“He has done this before he came into office in 2015 and has continued to do that without any disruption. For last year, 2020, he couldn’t make it because of travel restrictions that was caused by COVID-19. It’s a routine and we are hoping that the president comes back after the check up.”

Asked if doctors visited the President during the lockdown in 2020, Shehu said: “The President enjoyed good round of health. When his classmates come visiting, you will know that the President is doing well. He chose this moment because it’s like a holiday season as Friday is a national holiday, so he’s taking advantage of the Easter season.

Asked if the President would take the second jab of COVID-19 vaccine in the UK, Garba Shehu said the President would have returned before then.

Osibanjo is just a Statue in Aso rock... no relevance!



A commissioner in Katsina or Kano is well recognized than Osibanjo in Nigeria politics. Shame!

Sane mind and people recognize his role and he is more relevant than anybody in your family.

How can you compare Osibanjo to a commissioner in Kastina, you urgently need brain transplant.

Judging by your posts on Nairaland, you must be a pained yeebo that was rooting for obiliar.

Transmitting power to Osinbanjo is like giving Sheffield United to manage at the point of relegation.

It's unnecessary because erstwhile his medical leave, he was not ruling. So why the theatrics of transmitting power to the VP?
