A coordinator is a Person of equal status with others
So the Vee Pee cannot make appointments or sack anybody while the President is away
He cannot discipline any erring minister
He is limited in policy decisions, as a coordinator
He has no power of control over the "Cabal" to whom the president has handed over power, albeit illegally
The Chief of Staff was recently reported to have moved vital documents away from Aso Villa
In effect, Nigeria has no leader presently 
The existing office of Vee Pee is no more
The constitutionally created office of Acting President has been circumscribed by the President 
The President is away on an indefinite medical trip abroad 
The Senate lacks the power to pronounce Osinbajo As Acting President, without a WRITTEN RESOLUTION of BOTH CHAMBERS of the National Assembly, through a DECISION taken on the FLOOR of both chambers.
The President cannot travel for medical check up for an indefinite period of time
The National Assembly should reject the letter from the President 
There is therefore a serious constitutional crisis
Pro-government lawyers and activists, who have goaded the Buhari administration into dubious and reckless interpretations of the Constitution in the past, should be held responsible for the current crisis and all acts of impunity from Aso Villa
In all, the National Assembly should commence impeachment proceedings against the President for gross misconduct.
