- Story Text: Nigerian Vice President Yemi Osinbajo arrived in London on Tuesday (July 11), where he will meet President Muhammadu Buhari who has spent the last two months on medical leave.
A Reuters reporter saw Osinbajo arrive at Abuja House, the Nigerian High Commission in London, late on Tuesday. He did not comment as he entered the building.
Buhari left Abuja on May 7 and handed over power to his deputy to allay concerns of a void at the top of Africa's biggest economy.
"Osinbajo meeting with President Buhari in London today, and returning to Abuja immediately afterwards," the vice president's spokesman, Laolu Akande, said in a Twitter message posted earlier on Tuesday. No details were given.
