Speaking on March 30,  Garba Shehu, said it is not necessary for the President to hand over power to Osinbajo.

“He (Buhari) will continue from wherever he is. The requirement of the law is that the President is going to be absent in the country for 21 days and more, then that transmission is warranted. In this particular instance, it is not warranted.” he said
