- Fani-Kayode describes the release of 82 Chibok girls as a bad film script
- He says the whole thing stinks
- The ex-Aviation minister thinks that Vice president Osinbajo may be Acting President for quite some time, and within the year, may well be sworn in as substantive President
Femi Fani-Kayode, Nigeria's former aviation Minister, has reacted to the release of 82 Chibok schoolgirls by Boko Haram and President Muhammadu Buhari's trip to London.
Fani-Kayode wondered why journalists were not allowed into the Presidential Villa and why the Chibok girls saw President Buhari behind closed doors.
He noted that the president is now being flown to London for further medical treatment for "a period of time to be determined by his doctors".
According to him, the whole thing is like a bad film script and it stinks.
Fani-Kayode also thinks that Vice president Professor Yemi Osinbajo may be Acting President for quite some time, and within the year, may well be sworn in as substantive President.
Earlier, NAIJ.com reported that President Buhari was set to travel to London on Sunday night, May 7 for a medical check-up.

The presidency disclosed that Vice President Osinbajo will be Acting President as the duration of Buhari's medical trip is yet to be known.
The report came just after it was reported that the 82 abducted school girls released by Boko Haram at about 7.04pm on Sunday, May 7, arrived the Presidential Villa in Abuja to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari.
They were driven to the Villa in a military convoy amidst tight security.
The 82 girls were released on Saturday, May 6, after a successful negotiation with a team representing the Nigerian government.
Some details of the negotiation involved in the release of 82 more Chibok girls by the dreaded Boko Haram terrorists have been released.
It was gathered that two combined team of military and Red Cross negotiators involved in the negotiation, flew two Boko Haram commanders to Banki town in Borno state in exchange for the girls, while the Nigerian army took custody of the girls who were handed over by Boko Haram representatives.
