President Muhammadu Buhari has written the National Assembly, notifying the legislature of his 10-day leave and temporary transfer of power to Vice-president Yemi Osinbajo.

Senate President Bukola Saraki read Mr Buhari’s letter, also forwarded to the House of Representatives, on Thursday.

The leave is between January 23 and February 6, making 10 working days, the President told the lawmakers through the letter read by Mr Saraki at Thursday’s plenary.

A formal notice to both chambers of the National Assembly to appraise the lawmakers of intention to go on leave and hand over power temporarily to the vice-president is in compliance with Section 145 (1) of the Nigerian Constitution.
