Osinbajo silent Over Emergency Visit To President Buhari Overnight In The UK

Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Tuesday refused to field questions from the media, as he had visited President Muhammadu Buhari in the UK. 

Osinbajo was spotted at the Abuja House, the Nigerian High Commission in London, by a Reuters reporter late in the evening.  He did not comment as he entered the building, where he spent one hour with the President.   
"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. 
Officials have not disclosed details of Buhari's illness, which has caused fierce speculation in the Nigerian media and on social media about his ailment and whether he will seek a second term in the 2019 election. 
A thin-looking Buhari, 74, was last seen in Nigeria on state television welcoming a group of 82 girls released by Islamist militant group Boko Haram, hours before he flew to Britain.    
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.  Reuters
