The acting president, Yemi Osinbajo, on Tuesday spent one hour with President Muhammadu Buhari in London and then swiftly left to begin the journey home.
According to Reuters, Mr Osinbajo arrived in the night at the Abuja House, where Mr Buhari has been living since he arrived 8 May, from Nigeria for medical vacation.
Mr Osinbajo spent one hour and left without making any comment on his meeting with Mr Buhari.
“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.
Mr Buhari, 74, left Nigeria the night of 7 May after welcoming a group of 82 Chibok schoolgirls released by the militant group Boko Haram.
It was President Mr Buhari’s second medical visit to Britain this year. The first began in January and lasted nearly two months.
