President Muhammadu Buhari,on Sunday, said Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is now in charge of the country.
The president departed Abuja on Sunday for his routine medical checkup in the United Kingdom.
Speaking to State House correspondents before his departure at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, the president said he has capable hands to run the government in his absence.
“Well, I cannot claim to be doing the work alone. The government is fully represented; the vice-president is there. Constitutionally, when I’m away, he’s in charge. And the Secretary to the Government and then the Chief of Staff. So, I have no problem,” Buhari said.
On the forthcoming national convention of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Buhari expressed confidence that the programme will be successful.
“Well, they should wait and see. How did we come as a party to take power from the ruling party who had been there before us for so many years? So we have the capacity, everything will be alright,” the president added
