What is the Presidency?

In the reign of Goodlock E. Jonathan, the word presidency was not given cognition. Why is it that at certain time in President Muhammadu Buhari's regime that we suddenly have the presidency?
The answer is simply. When Buhari was elected newly, in 2015, this word was not in creation. Eventually, Buhari became relatively incapacitated to play his roles manfully. At this point, there was need to create a body that should be answerable to him while in the hospital in London.
The body, headed secretly by Abba Kyari, performed creditably well in overseeing the even distribution of Nigerian wealth among the Fulani lords and in sponsoring the actualization of the age-long Fulanization plans. 
Considering their roles, when Buhari died and a doppelganger was improvised in the person of Jubril from Sudan, Nigeria ceased from having a president; instead, she now has the presidency.
