…Returns Wednesday for FEC meeting
By Shola Agba, Abuja
Ailing President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, summoned Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to a meeting with him in the United Kingdom where he is presently on medical vacation over undisclosed illness.
Osinbajo jetted out of Abuja soon after presiding over the Quarterly Presidential Business Forum at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on media and publicity, Laolu Akande, had initially denied the trip when he realized that State House correspondents had knowledge of it, saying that the Acting President would only be traveling to Lagos.
But he later confirmed in a tweet on his twitter handle, @akandeoj that Osinbajo has indeed left for London on the president’s summons without providing details.
However, he said the Acting President would return to Abuja immediately thereafter without also giving specific date.
“Acting President Osinbajo meeting with President Buhari in London today, and returning to Abuja immediately afterwards,” Akande tweeted.
It is expected that he would return to Abuja in time to preside over Wednesday’s meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC).
