Nigerian president, Muhammadu Buhari, has reportedly given a timeline that he may resign if he fails to recover from his undisclosed illness.
The President left Nigeria for London on May 7 on a medical follow up, leaving the office for Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo.
Independent reports that, though the president has made immense improvements in the last couple of weeks, he has told one of his close aides that if he doesn’t recover by a specific date, he will tender his resignation letter.
According to the newspaper, which reportedly spoke to the Presidential aide, contrary to the views by many, the president is not desperate to cling on to power but he is being advised by doctors to continue with the treatment while Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo presides over the affairs of the nation.
It also reported that though some aides of the president tried to bypass the acting president in order to get to the president, the president directed them to relate with the acting president who is presently in charge of the affairs of the nation.
It quoted the Presidential aide as saying that the fact that the decision of the president to direct all state matters to the acting president has greatly contributed to the remarkable progress the president has made in the last couple of weeks.
