Medical trip: President Buhari’s trip to UK unconstitutional – Edwin Clark


Leader of Pan-Niger Delta Forum (PANDEF), Edwin Clark, says President Muhammadu Buhari breached the constitution by not formally transmitting power to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo before leaving for London for his routine medical check-up.

Addressing a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, Clark accused the president of taking Nigerians for granted and violating Section 145 of the constitution which mandates him to hand over power when he is travelling.

Femi Adesina, special adviser to the president on media and publicity, announced Buhari’s departure on Monday.

He said the president is expected back in the country in the second week of November.

However, there was no mention of whether Osinbajo would be in charge in the president’s absence.

To discuss this further, I’m joined by legal expert, Liborous Oshoma, thank you very much for joining us.
