According to the presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, the president has embarked on a 5 day trip to take care of his health. This trip will end on the 10th of February.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will perform the functions of the President during his absence.
It can be recollected that after the six-week postponement of the presidential election, Mr. Buhari spent an extended period in London, purportedly to rest.
He then spent another nine days in London to meet with his doctors, returning only one day before his inauguration.
