Former Kogi Senator, Dino Melaye took to Twitter to ask President Buhari to transfer power to his Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo as he leaves the country for the UK for his routine medical checkup.
The Presidency had released a statement on Monday night, March 29, informing Nigerians that the President would be travelling to London, United Kingdom for medical check-up and would be back in the second week of April.
Reacting to the news, Melaye in a tweet posted on his handle, asked the President to transfer power to the Vice President through a letter to the National Assembly. He urged that the president should do this before leaving the country today.
“The president should transfer power to the Vice President through a letter to the National Assembly before leaving the country in-line with constitutional provision.” he wrote.
The last time Buhari travelled out of the country was in April 2019 for a medical check-up in the UK. He returned to the country in May of that year.
