The Presidency has debunked the rumoured extension of President Muhammadu Buhari’s 10-day vacation in London, but failed to tell Nigerians when to expect their president.
A story had been spinned on the internet that Buhari had written the National Assembly informing it that he will stay beyond his scheduled time.
The Presidency however, via its verified Twitter handle, @NGRPresident, pointed out that a story published by Tribune Online, on February 5, 2017 “is currently being mischievously circulated on social media platforms, to create the impression that it’s related to the President’s current vacation.”
It advised Nigerians to “kindly take note of the date, 2017.
“The President has NOT extended his ongoing 10-Working-Days vacation,” the Presidency said.
Mr. Buhari left the country on August 3 on a 10-day medical vacation, meaning that the president normally should resume work on Friday, but the presidency, in its rebuttal, could not categorically say that.
Ten clear working days should end on Thursday.
