Politics Presidency Reacts to Rumors on Extension of Buhari's Vacation



Mr Ita Enang, Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters, has debunked insinuations that the Senate may void President Mohammadu Buhari’s request to extend his vacation period.

On Tuesday, the senate acknowledged receipt of the letter conveying the fresh request for extension but noted that no time frame was indicated.

According to Enang, it was only important was for the senate to be informed of the president’s intention.

“It doesn’t require a `yes’ or a `no’; it is to inform it," he said. “What is important is that there is a communication with the senate.

“Once the communication is received by the senate and the House of Representatives, through their respective presiding officers, that settles it,’’ the presidential aide said.

On non-specification of time frame needed by the president, he said “this question will not be answered until the senate sits.

“But, I want us to look at the Constitution because the Constitution says what should be done is notification.’’
