Buhari left Abuja on Jan. 19 for 10 days of treatment in Britain but extended his stay on the advice of doctors.

In Buhari's absence, Osinbajo, a lawyer, played a prominent role, chairing cabinet meetings and finishing work on an economic reform plan needed to secure a World Bank loan to help plug a deficit caused by low oil revenues.
