According to a report by Punch, President Jonathan, VP Namadi Sambo and many ministers will travel out of the country shortly after the May 29 inauguration of a new government.
Jonathan is supposedly traveling abroad for what he calls ‘a much deserved rest’ while Sambo is planning to travel to London on May 31, two days after the inauguration of Buhari to also rest.
Minister of Finance, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, will reportedly return to the US while Mrs.Diezani Allison-Madueke, has already travelled out of the country. She left Nigeria for London yesterday but will return next week and will travel out again before the inauguration.
Minister of Health, Dr. Khaliru Alhassan, and Minister of Education, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau are also planning to travel for ‘work’.
Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Musiliu Obanikoro, plans to travel abroad for a two-week vacation after May 29.
Sources close to the officials say they are traveling for work and deserved rest and not because they are afraid of any probe or witch-hunting, as they have done nothing wrong.
