Buhari’s hand over letter in January and May. Spot the difference?

Well, it’s no longer news that President Muhammadu Buhari has travelled again.

Nigerians have mixed feelings about it, and some went ahead to analyze the instructions given to the Vice president by the President.

They scrutinized the two handover letters written by President Buhari in January and May respectively.

Read the letters below and spot the difference. Lol.

Buhari’s handover letter in January.

“Further to my letter dated 18th January 2017 in which I notified the Distinguished Senate of taking part of my annual leave.

“During my leave, I took the opportunity to have routine check-ups and consult my long standing doctors in London.

“In the course of the routine examinations, certain test result indicated the need for a course of medications and further appointments have been scheduled for next week.

“I am therefore notifying the Distinguished Senate that I am extending my leave until the doctors are satisfied that certain factors are ruled out. In the circumstances, the vice president will continue to act on my behalf.

“Please accept, Distinguished Senate President, the assurances of my highest consideration.”

Buhari’s handover letter in May.

In compliance with section 145 {1) of the 1999 constitution as amended.

I wish to inform the distinguished Senate that I will be away for a scheduled medical followup with my doctors in London.

The length of my stay will be determined by the doctor’s advice.

“While I am away the vice president will coordinate the activities of the government.

Pls accept the distinguished senate president the assurances of my highest consideration.”

In the first letter, the verb ‘act‘ was used while in the second, ‘coordinate‘ was used. The problem is, some Nigerians think these words are not synonyms.

Oya tell us what you think. Is coordinate and act really different?
