UPDATED: Osinbajo jets off to London to meet with Buhari


Yemi Osinbajo, the Acting President, will travel to London this evening to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari, according to Laolu Akande, his spokesman.



    Making the disclosure in a tweet on Tuesday, Akande said Osinbajo will return to Abuja “immediately afterwards”.

    Buhari has been receiving medical attention in London since May 7, prompting speculations about his abilities to continue leading the federal government.

    However, at different times, key officials of his cabinet and the party have attempted to play down the speculations.

    On Monday, his wife Aisha tweeted a cryptic message suggesting he was recovering fast and would be back in the country soon.
