The Nigerian Senate has read on the floor of the house, a letter from President Buhari on his travel to the United Kingdom for follow-up on his medical check-up.

The President’s letter was read by Senate President Bukola Saraki during plenary on Tuesday, May 9.

The President revealed on the letter that he had no stipulated date for his return as his doctors would be in the right position to determine when he shall be returning.

President Buhari, however, said that his trip to the United Kingdom is for a medical follow-up to his initial treatments and tests from his earlier medical leave to London.

According to the President, the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo is expected to continue to coordinate the affairs of the country until President Buhari is expected returns to country by his doctors.

Meanwhile, there was a mini drama after the letter was read when a senator, Mao Ohabunwa faulted the position given to Yemi Osinbajo in the letter.

Mao Ohabunwa raised a point of order noting that there is no provision in the Nigerian constitution for a coordinating vice president as contained in the President Buhari’s letter.
