The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari did not write to the National Assembly, to inform them of his trip to the United Kingdom.

Appearing on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Sunday, the PDP’s Deputy National Chairman, Yemi Akinwunmi, said the President ought to have notified the lawmakers, indicating his mission abroad and transferring power to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

“I know by the standard convention all over the world, it is conventional that when the President is travelling out of a domain, whether privately or publicly after about six or seven days, he has to have a course to the National Assembly to disclose his mission and then transfer power to the Vice President.

“These guys are talking as if Nigeria is a private enterprise, it is not. The President derives his power from the citizens. And he is responsible not to the presidency but to Nigerians.

“The money he is going to spend in the course of the journey is derived from the federation account,” Akinwunmi said.

Buhari is expected to spend 10 days in the UK and return on May 5.

Nigeria We Hail Thee.  Are we progressing or retrogressing: remember when I was a 'clown', I used to admire this statement from the AA,  Major I O S  Nwanchukwu : "The Command of the NDA devolves on Col ....vice  .......the Commandant of the NDA who roceeds on a two -day visit to Camp Highland". I can imagine the Secretary  to the Govt and the COS to Buhari struggling between themselves who to perform the Duty of the C In C in  A Clear and Present Danger.
