Buhari, Osinbajo, Saraki out of the country

By Michael Paul

In what could be described as an unusual situation, President Buhari, his vice president and the Senate President, are currently out of the country, leaving only Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, within.
It means the nation’s number 1, 2 and 3 citizens are all out of the country at the same time.
There was no evidence that in the absence of the trio, power was transmitted to Dogara, who is the Number 4 Citizen.
IVOTESNG.COM reports that President Muhammadu Buhari had on Friday jetted out to Jordan for the World Economic Forum (WEF), from where he proceeded to Dubai for another official engagement.
On his part, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has travelled to Rwanda, while Senate President Bukola Saraki is currently in Qatar for the International Parliamentary Union (IPU) meeting.
However, it was learnt that there was no letter to the National Assembly by the president transmitting power to anybody.
A source at the National Assembly said the president did not need to transmit power since he was not embarking on a medical vacation or his annual leave.
Besides, the source said the president was going to be out of the country on official engagement for only a few days, hence there was no need for transmitting power to the vice president or anybody else.
