Yemi Osinbajo is now acting president of Nigeria. President Muhammadu Buhari told journalists at the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja, shortly before leaving for London where he is expected to attend to his ill-health, on Monday, that he had transmitted a letter to the National Assembly informing it of his 10-day vacation in London.
Osinbajo will therefore act as president for the period. Depending on the progress made in his ailment’s treatment, the period could be extended.
The president is reported to have an ear infection.
