Nigeria’s President Buhari Heads to London on Vacation Amid Party Crisis

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari heads to Britain for 10 days on Friday in what his spokesman has described as a “routine vacation”.

The holiday comes just months after he spent about four days in the European country to visit his doctor and close to a year since he spent another five months in London for medical treatment.

The President’s Spokesman Femi Adesina said Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbanjo will be charge during Buhari’s absence, but gave no further details.

Buhari, who is contesting the election in Africa’s largest country next February, is facing a slew of resignations from his All Progressive Congress Party.

Just this week, Senate President Bukola Saraki and Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal both decamped to the opposition People’s Democratic Party.

Here are some views from Nigerians on Twitter on the head of state’s vacation.

Just days before his intended holiday, Buhari was picked as the next leader of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), and also launched his new electoral headquarters in the state capital Abuja.

  1. Look no other leader in eight hundred years has spent more time away from his job than Bhuhari . The last person to spend more time eight hundred years ago was King Richard the Lion Heart and he was fighting the Crusades . I really think that this sick old man should stay in beloved London . His family have made millions so just disappear and call it a day . No one respects you , you only care about the North , and you are an illiterate . How the man ever became a General is beyond me . He can’t speak english if he tried . Stay in London and take your greedy family with you .
