The president left Nigeria on August 3, after transmitting a letter of notification to the leadership of the national assembly.
He handed over power to Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to serve as acting president in his absence.
WHILE BUHARI WAS AWAY:
Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) barricaded the entrance of the national assembly complex in an operation that lasted hours.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) mounted pressure on Senate President Bukola Saraki to step down after he left the ruling party for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Federal lawmakers met with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to consider the commission’s budget for the 2019 polls.
The APC secured three more seats at the senate after its members soared to victory in the Bauchi south, Katsina north and Lokoja/Kogi senatorial bye-elections.
