The medical vacation of President Muhammadu Buhari has allegedly prevented no less than 10 foreign ambassadors from resuming duties at their respective embassies in the country. Reports indicated that the envoys had been unable to present their letters of credence at the Presidential Villa due to the absence of the President, who has been out of the country for about two months.The ambassadors-designate affected include those of the Republic of Bangladesh, Egypt, Vietnam, Republic of Benin, Mexico, Greece, Togo and Thailand. It was gathered that their letters of credence were specifically addressed to Buhari hence the inability of the ambassadors-designate to present them to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.The letter of credence is the instrument by which a Head of State exercises his power to appoint ambassadors and ministers to other countries and it is signed by the sending Head of State and is usually addressed to the receiving Head of State. The letter is handed over by the diplomatic representative at his first audience with the head of state. The inability of the envoys to present their credentials had made it impossible for them to carry out their responsibilities.Photo Credit: Getty
