President Muhammadu Buhari will on Friday be leaving Nigeria for London to observe his annual vacation.

This makes it the ninth time President Buhari will be enjoying a vacation in Queensland since he assumed power in 2015.

A letter has already been transmitted to the National Assembly to make all of this official and constitutional.

While away, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will step in as Acting President.

Buhari is expected back in Nigeria on the weekend of August 11-13, 2018.

Check out some things we expect Baba to do while on vacation:
