The Senior Special Assistant to the Acting President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, confirmed Osinbajo’s trip to London in a message on his Twitter handle.

Akande said Osinbajo would meet Buhari in London and return to the country immediately after the meeting.

He wrote, “AgP Osinbajo meeting with President Buhari in London today, and returning to Abuja immediately afterwards.”
