  • Embattled Osinbajo Breaks Silence On Sacked Aides

    The Office of Nigeria's Vice President has at long last affirmed that
    without a doubt, a few assistants of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, have been eased of their employments.

    Recall that on Wednesday, dozens of aides of the embattled Vice President were reportedly sacked through the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) on the request for President Muhammad Buhari, who is on a fourteen day vacation in the United Kingdom.

    Prior on Thursday, Daily Trust papers in a report solely uncovered names and arrangement of the 35 Osinbajo's aides sacked by the President.
    According to the newspapers, Mr Osinbajo has over 80 aides attached to his office but not all of them work within the Presidential Villa.
    Reacting on Thursday, Media Aide to the Vice President, Laolu Akande, said as a footnote to tweets that the list of sacked aides is not genuine hence, should be ignored.
    He however, did not deny the fact that some aides of his Principal have been sacked.
    Akande, via his Twitter handle @akandeoj had tweeted that the scuffle earlier in the day between Vanguard photojournalist attached to the Presidential Villa, Abayomi Adeshida and security aides to the Vice President had been resolved.

    He however, added a footnote that “Also, a list circulating in the media on d so-called sacked …
    “…presidential aides is not genuine and ought to be ignored.”
    “The needless scuffle btw a villa accredited photographer, Mr. Adeshida & one of our security aides earlier today has since been resolved. Incident is regretted & I have apologized to him for any embarrassment caused. Also, a list circulating in the media on d so-called sacked …
    …presidential aides is not genuine and ought to be ignored,” Akande tweeted.

    Prompt News Online reports that the powers of Vice President Osinbajo have been whittled down lately with key agencies of government moved from his office to the newly created Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development being superintended by Hajiya Sadiya Umar Farouk.
    Recall that President Buhari recently dissolved the Economic Management Team headed by Mr Osinbajo while an Economic Advisory Council headed by Prof Doyin Salami was constituted and subsequently inaugurated. The council will report directly to the President.
    Political pundits believe that the signing into law of a Bill by President Buhari who is on vacation in London is part of plans orchestrated by ‘the Cabal’ to frustrate Vice President Osinbajo to resign from office.
