Nigerian human rights activist, Inibehe Effiong, has blasted the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari for embarking on a three week foreign trip without handing over power to Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo as the acting president for the second time this year.

Effiong said in a statement that “This President is lawless. Buhari has gotten away with murder.

“In the spirit of the rule of law and due process, one would have expected Buhari to either comply with the mandatory requirement of Section 145 (1) of the Constitution by transmitting a letter to President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives to empower Prof. Osinbajo to become Acting President during his vacation or await the court’s decision on the matter.

“Buhari has shown disdain for the law. Buhari is not bigger than Nigeria. It is a shame that we now have a tourist as President.”

The President, who has travelled to over 33 countries since he took office in 2015, transmitted power to Osinbajo in 2016, 2017 and 2018 but since his re-election in February 2019, the President has failed to do so.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, on Monday, announcing the President’s travel itinerary, there was no mention of power being transmitted to the Vice-President.


According to the statement, the President embarked on a trip to Saudi Arabia on Monday and then leave for the United Kingdom on November 2 for a private visit.

Although the Presidency failed to reveal the nature of Buhari’s “private visit”, the President has been known to pay several visits to the UK for medical reasons, having spent over 120 days there treating an unknown illness in the past four years.

Buhari’s private visit to the UK will be the second of such this year.

Also, in April this year, the President travelled to the UK on a private visit without transmitting power to Osinbajo.
