It has been speculated that Nigerian Governance is in big trouble as the president of the Federal Republic is in a very ill state and as such will result to destabilization in the country forgetting that the president has a very dependable cabinet and even the president is convinced that Nigeria is in good hands.

Twenty-four hours after he proceeded to London on account of his health, President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday expressed confidence that his absence would not affect the smooth running of government.

Buhari, who relayed this last night in a tweet on his Twitter handle @MBuhari, said his confidence in effective government apparatus while he’s away was absolute.

“As I noted earlier, I have absolute confidence that government will continue to run smoothly while I’m away. God bless the Federal Republic,” he said.
Buhari had handed the reins of power to his deputy, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, on Sunday before departing for London.

His media aide, Mr. Femi Adesina, said the duration of the president’s trip, which he described as a follow-up medical consultation with his doctors, would be as determined by the doctors.
Adesina said whereas the president had initially planned to embark on the trip Sunday afternoon, he had to delay his flight as a result of the 82 freed Chibok girls who arrived Abuja earlier in the day.
