Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo will be meeting with the Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari in London on Tuesday, July 7, 2017.

According to Osinbajo's spokesperson, Laolu Akande, the acting president will be meeting with the ailing president in London in a couple of hours.

It's the first time Osinbajo will be jetting out of the country to see Buhari since the latter commenced his stop-start medical vacations last year.

Buhari left Nigeria for London on May 7, 2017 and was last heard in a Sallah audio that underscored just how gravely ill he's become.

Buhari's ailment has also not been disclosed.

First Lady Aisha Buhari just returned from a trip to see her husband as well. She has promised that 'Hyenas and Jackals' will soon be kicked from within yards of the nation's corridors of power in Abuja.

Buhari last returned to Nigeria from a medical vacation on March 10 after spending 51 days in a London apartment.

He's spent 65 days on his latest trip thus far.

The Nigerian leader looked increasingly pale and gaunt days before he left the country.
