Osinbajo replies critics - 'President Buhari handed over to me'

The Ag. president Yemi Osinbajo has addressed the speculations making the rounds that President Buhari did not properly hand over power to him before proceeding on medical leave.

Replying a Twitter user who questioned the 'hand over' process, the professor said  that President Buhari did
transfer power to him and that he had sent a letter to the Senate in compliance with S.145 (1) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).

Here's what he said after the cut

He has however deleted this tweet...

Note: That section of the constitution reads:
“Whenever the President transmits to the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives a written declaration that he is proceeding on vacation or that he is otherwise unable to discharge the functions of his office, until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary such functions shall be discharged by the Vice-President as Acting President.”
