Buhari Writes National Assembly of Intention to Resume Work Monday

President Muhammadu Buhari has written the leaderships of the two chambers of the National Assembly to inform them of his intention to resume work on Monday.
He is formally notifying them of his return to the country from London, United Kingdom.
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina confirmed the resumption on Sunday.
He had twitted last Friday of the development. “PMB will Monday transmit letter to N’Assembly on his return to the country. That makes his return to work formal, and constitutional,” he twitted.
President Buhari on January 19 transmitted a letter to the National Assembly informing them of his 10 days vacation in London.
He also transmitted the powers of his office to the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, according to the provisions of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).
The President however failed to return after the 10 days which elapsed on February 6.
He later wrote another letter to the Parliament, extending his leave, informing them of his doctors’ advise to stay put abroad and run a series of medical tests.
The extension was indefinite as no date of his return was given. The President however returned to the country last week Friday after spending 51 days in the United Kingdom to attend to his health. Meanwhile, Adesina has denied knowledge of an impending cabinet reshuffling.
The same was the case with the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu.
Both men who spoke on Sunday evening said they were not in the picture of any cabinet changes.
