By Philips Sunday

Abuja, (AN24) – President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki on Wednesday, February 15, led a four-man legislative team to visit President Muhammadu Buhari who is currently on vacation in London, United Kingdom.

Other members of the legislature on the team include, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, Deputy Speaker, Lasun Yusuf and Senate Leader, Senator Ahmed Lawan.

The team departed Nigeria for London on Wednesday morning to meet with President Buhari who has extended his vacation indefinitely to attend to his health.

The visit is coming few days after the National leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu and former governor of Osun state, Bisi Akande paid the president a visit.

Recall that Ogun state governor, Ibikunle Amosun and Daisy Danjuma had also visited the president, who is on vacation in the United Kingdom.

Meanwhile, Buhari had transferred power to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo before he left for the UK.

The President was scheduled to return to the country on Sunday  (February 5) – at the end of his 10-day vacation which began on January 19 – but he extended the time indefinitely, citing advice from his doctor that he should wait to get his test results as the reason for his decision.

This was according to a statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina.

“The President had planned to return to Abuja this (Sunday) evening, but was advised to complete the test cycle before returning.

“The notice has since been dispatched to the Senate President, and Speaker, House of Representatives.

“Mr. President expresses his sincere gratitude to Nigerians for their concern, prayers and kind wishes,” Adesina stated.
