The All Progressives Congress
(APC) has said that President
» Muhammadu Buhari is allowed
to go on vacation whenever he
The APC’s comments were expressed by
National Auditor, George Moghalu while
speaking to Daily Sun.
“There is nothing wrong with his (Buhari) going
on vacation and what he does with his vacation
period is entirely his business,” he said.
“Let us assume he is sick; what is wrong with
someone falling sick? On the contrary, Mr
President should rather be commended
because things that have not been happening
before are happening now.
“We have a president transmitting power to his
deputy to act while he goes on a 10-day
vacation trip and relayed the information to
the National Assembly. Previously,
government was personalised and what we had
was a case of ‘if he is not there everything
stops.’ President Buhari has brought a level of
civility in politics. There is nothing wrong with
his going on vacation and what he does with his
vacation period is entirely his business.
“The Presidency has said that he is not sick to
the extent of incapacitation. There is no
debate about whether he is still fit to rule the
country,” he added.
Buhari is in London to receive treatment for a
persistent ear infection. »
