Buhari Can Rule Nigeria From Anywhere In The World – Presidency


Two days after President Muhammadu Buhari embarked on a 10-day private visit to the United Kingdom, the presidency has on Saturday, April 27, 2019, said that the president can govern the country from anywhere in the world.

The presidency said Buhari did not need to inform the National Assembly, so long as his absence was for a short period, adding that the president while in the UK could exercise authority as the President since his absence would only last for 10 days and not up to 21 days.

Responding to an inquiry by Punch on Buhari’s visit to the UK, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu defended the president with Section 145 (1)(2) of the 1999 Constitution saying “ This is a relatively short absence. If you check Section 145 (1) and (2) of the Constitution, you will see that the law is only infringed upon when such absence extends to 21 days.”
