Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will leave Abuja on Saturday for London, where he will represent Nigeria at many ceremonies on Sunday and Monday, including the State burial for Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom.

“Prof. Osinbajo departs Abuja today and will join members of the Royal Family, world leaders – including members of the Commonwealth, Heads of State, Governors-General, Prime Ministers, and foreign royal families – at the ceremonies, including the funeral service scheduled to take place at Westminster Abbey on Monday,” VP’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, said in a statement on Saturday.
