On Tuesday, Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, visited President Muhammadu Buhari for the first time since he left for the UK on May 7 on medical vacation.

Osinbajo’s visit enabled him brief Buhari on how he has been steering the ship in his absence and also have first-hand knowledge about the President’s health.

The Nation reports that the trip was a closely guarded secret and carried out through “covert diplomatic and intelligence methods.”

Most of Osinbajo’s key aides and cabinet members were oblivious of the trip.

The Acting President reportedly dashed for the airport after making brief remarks at a Presidential Quarterly Business Forum at the old Banquet Hall of the State House in Abuja.

“The trip had been planned in the past three weeks but was only known to few people for strategic reasons. The ‘Jackals and Hyenas’ were beaten to it.

“The Acting President went to London to wish his boss well, get undiluted information on his health, brief the President on certain decisions he had taken and seek his approval for some appointments and outstanding reforms in government.
“Some members of the cabinet have not been committed to Osinbajo’s acting presidency too.

“Other parts of Osinbajo’s visit were the need to clear misgivings about some of the steps he has taken, especially the need to clarify that he is not executing any anti-North agenda and the alleged accusation of abandoning the President’s agenda.

“Some of those who has access to the President had painted a wrong picture of the situation at home in order to create a wedge between him and Prof. Osinbajo.

“The trip was laced with some diplomatic and intelligence coordination. Most cabinet members and key aides were caught unawares,” a source revealed.”

He added:
So far, the trip is fruitful and the Acting President will be able to do certain things, including the inauguration of the two ministers.

“I think we should expect some radical changes after this trip. The two leaders discussed extensively on some directions.”
