Osinbajo Confirms “Power was handed to me”

In the midst of the controversy surrounding  the letter President Muhammadu Buhari sent to the National Assembly, where he said Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will “coordinate” government activities, the Vice President has declared that the President actually handed over power to him.

In his response to a question on Twitter, Osinbajo said power was transferred to him.

One Bernard Amaiguo,  tweeting via @benamaigwo, had asked: “Mr. Vice President, why did Mr. President refuse to hand over the affairs of the country to you?”

The vice president, responding @ProfOsinbajo, said: “He did Sir. He transmitted a letter to the Senate in compliance with S.145 (1) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).”

Buhari, in letter sent to the National Assembly on his medical vacation, stated that the vice-president would “coordinate the activities of the government” in his absence.

This was different from a letter he sent to the National Assembly when he embarked on a similar trip to the UK in January. At the time, he wrote that the vice-president would “perform the duties of my office” in his absence.
