A National Assembly delegation on Wednesday met with President Muhammadu Buhari who is currently on medical vacation at the Abuja House in London.
The President confirmed their arrival via Twitter, where he shared photos and stated: “Pleased to receive Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Speaker, Yakubu Dogara and Senate Leader, Ahmed Lawan, tonight”.
The four-man team left for London on Wednesday morning to meet with President Buhari who had extended his vacation indefinitely to attend to his health.
The president of the Senate led the delegation. In a statement via his official Facebook page, the Senate president said the president was cheerful and that his absence from the country has not created a vacuum.
He wrote: “Myself, Rt Honorable Speaker, Yakubu Dogara and leader of Senate, Senator Ahmed Lawan paid a visit to President Buhari in Abuja House in London.
“We were delighted to see that President Buhari is doing well, was cheerful and in good spirits.
“The president I saw today is healthy, witty and himself.
“The president’s absence and imminent return shows that there is no vacuum in government and our system of democracy is working with all organs of government fulfilling their mandate. And let me use the time tested cliché, there is no cause for alarm!”
