President Muhammadu Buhari, who returned to Nigeria on Friday after medical leave, said he will leave his deputy in charge for the time being and not immediately resume power.
The 74-year-old said Vice President Yemi Osinbajo “will continue” in the role of acting president “and I will continue to rest”. No timeline was given for how long Osinbajo would be in charge.
But Buhari’s aide on digital communication, Tolu Ogunlesi said the president only “joked that he deliberately came back on a Friday so Osinbajo can continue working and he (PMB) can have a few more days to rest.”
But it is not clear when Buhari will return fully to work.
More details to come.
