President Muhammadu Buhari is now in the United Kingdom for a 10-day vacation.
Buhari who departed Abuja for London in the early hours of Friday was bidded farewell by the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris; the Minister of the FCT, Mohammed Bello and the Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari.
Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, is expected to act as President till Mr Buhari returns back to Nigeria.
Meanwhile, The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has claimed President Muhammadu Buhari’s 10-day leave is an alibi to exonerate him from a planned invasion of the national assembly.
In a statement on Thursday, Kola Ologbondiyan, spokesman of the PDP, said the president is terrified and distressed by defections from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
