President Muhammadu Buhari’s spokesman, Garba Shehu says the president didn’t need to inform the national assembly of his ”private” trip to the UK.

The presidential spokesperson said this on Sunday while appearing as a guest on Channels TV programme.

Garba says the president didn’t break any law, by not transmitting a letter to the national assembly, on his ‘private trip’ to the UK.

He said “the president didn’t make a mistake by taking off without writing a letter to the national assembly because it was unnecessary. In some of the leading democracies, it’s conventional that in fact, a prime minister can be asked to leave the public space for a private time at least once in a month in some countries.”

“But as it is now, there is no constitutional or legal infraction that has happened. So, the president is doing his work from wherever he is,” he said.

“Yes, it is right that the president can operate anywhere he is. If you are a permanent secretary and the president calls you from Abidjan and says you go and repair that road, are you going to tell him that Mr President you are not a Nigerian in Abidjan, you are not going to do the work?”

“Do you think you will have your job waiting for you the next day? These are matters of common sense.”
