Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Monday said President Muhammadu Buhari is very fit to resume duties
He spoke with State House correspondents after briefing Buhari in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
“He is very well. We just had a very long meeting to bring the President up to speed on some of the things we have done while he was away.
“And he has given a few directives on what we should be doing on so many areas, the northeast, budget, the economy and a wide range of issues.
On whether the President is really ready for work, Osinbajo replied: “He held a meeting with me for over an hour where we discussed a wide range of issues so his readiness for work is not in doubt at all. In fact, he is over ready.”
Asked if he had handed over to Buhari, he replied: “Oh yes! I’m back to my regular position as vice president.”
On whether more assignments would be delegated to him because of Buhari’s health, he said “I think the President as you know has always given me several responsibilities.”
“I think what we must recognize is that the way this administration work is that it has always been team work.
“Very little is done without the President’s clearance. So, generally speaking so even with responsibilities that are my constitutional responsibilities, we have full discussions on them, we have full agreements on all of those issues.
“It is not necessarily delegation, yes in some cases delegation. But by and large practically everything I discuss fully with him and have his endorsement before we are able to go on and do anything at all.”
