The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that President Muhammadu Buhari is allowed to go on vacation whenever he wants.
The APC’s comments were expressed by National Auditor, George Moghalu while speaking to Daily Sun.
“There is nothing wrong with his (Buhari) going on vacation and what he does with his vacation period is entirely his business,” he said.
“Let us assume he is sick; what is wrong with someone falling sick? On the contrary, Mr President should rather be commended because things that have not been happening before are happening now.
“We have a president transmitting power to his deputy to act while he goes on a 10-day vacation trip and relayed the information to the National Assembly. Previously, government was personalised and what we had was a case of ‘if he is not there everything stops.’ President Buhari has brought a level of civility in politics. There is nothing wrong with his going on vacation and what he does with his vacation period is entirely his business.
“The Presidency has said that he is not sick to the extent of incapacitation. There is no debate about whether he is still fit to rule the country,” he added.
Buhari is in London to receive treatment for a persistent ear infection.
