His absence left a vacuum which was filled with a formal transfer of power to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
There are worries, however, that the Nigerian constitution does not provide adequately for the length of time an ailing President or Governor would be bed-ridden before his office is formally declared vacant.

Is it not about time that National Assembly gave due attention to the perceived legal vacuum?
