Buhari Can Rule Nigeria From Anywhere In The World - Presidency

Nigeria's Presidency has stated that President Buhari can rule from anywhere in the world, two days after he embarked on a 10-day private visit to the United Kingdom.The Presidency who on Saturday, April 27, 2019, said that President Buhari can rule from anywhere in the world, added that he did not need to inform the National Assembly, so long as his absence was for a short period. It further stated that the president while in the UK could exercise his authority, since his absence would only last for 10 days and not up to 21 days.

Reacting 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 who defended his principal said; "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.”
