President Muhammadu Buhari has written to the Senate, informing the lawmakers of his 10-day medical trip to London.

In the letter, the President also informed the Senate of  his temporary handover of the government to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

Buhari left Abuja on Monday for London where the Presidency said he would see an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist for his “persistent ear infection”.

The Senate on Tuesday read a letter from the President communicating his decision to travel.

The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, who read the letter to colleagues during plenary, said the Senate wished the President quick recovery.
