President Muhammadu Buhari will speak to his United States’ counterpart, Mr. Donald Trump, on phone today at 3.45p.m..
Buhari’s Personal Assistant on New Media, Ahmad Bashir, who disclosed this via his Twitter handle, said the president would make the call from his London residence.
Buhari had on January 19 departed Nigeria for the United Kingdom on a short vacation that would see him undergoing check-ups from January 24 and would resume on February 6.
Before leaving, the president wrote a letter informing the National Assembly of the trip and asking that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo act as Acting President.
He has since transmitted another letter in which he said he had decided to extend the vacation because of the need for “a course of medications and further appointments” with his doctors.
