VP Osinbajo’s Trip To India Cancelled After Realizin Dat Saraki Will Take Over by kelsidengkucio(m): 5:32am On Mar 13, 2016
Nigeria’s Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo, has made a last-minute cancelation of a trip to India owing to protocol blunders by the Protocol Department of the Presidency as well as a realization that Senate President Bukola Saraki would have had to act as President for a couple of days. Mr. Saraki is currently embroiled in a trial for corruption that he and his legal team are using all kinds of controversial maneuvers to beat.

“When the President and VP are out of town, the running of the country will fall automatically into the hands of the Senate President,” a Presidency official told SaharaReporters this evening. He added, “We did not want the awkwardness that would come with that scenario.”

SaharaReporters learned that a 27-member delegation, including the VP and two ministers, were scheduled to travel today to India for a conference. But Mr. Osinbajo’s trip was shelved when the Presidency’s protocol team discovered at the last minute that President Muhammadu Buhari was also going to travel to Equatorial Guinea on Sunday for a state visit that is scheduled to start on Monday.

Mr. Osinbajo’s trip to India, which was billed to end on Wednesday, would have meant that Nigeria would for more than two days be without its first two citizens, leaving the reins of power in the hands of Senate President Saraki. A source close to the VP stated that the prospect of Mr. Saraki’s assumption of presidential powers could not be tolerated in view of the ethical clouds around the senator. Mr. Saraki is currently facing criminal proceedings at the Code of Conduct Tribunal for alleged failure to make a correct declaration of his assets.

SaharaReporters learned that VP Osinbajo had already sent his advance party to India, and had booked hotels and made arrangements for ground transportation, all at a cost of $250,000, before the cancelation of the trip on Saturday.

President Buhari is still scheduled to travel to Malabo, Equatorial Guinea, for a two-day visit that begins on Monday.

A source at the Presidency blamed the State Chief of Protocol (SCOP), Lawal Abdullahi Kazaure, as well as the protocol team for the near-blunder. “The president’s protocol chief, Malam Kazaure, and the protocol department again displayed great incompetence here,” a source at the Presidency fumed. “They ought to have caught the issue earlier before it cost Nigeria a huge sum of money,” he added.

According to the source, the current SCOP was ill suited for the demands of the protocol department, but he was hired at the behest of Mamman Daura, a powerful but shadowy figure who is the nephew of President Buhari.

Both Mr. Kazaure and the Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, have drawn criticism for their incompetence, with some Presidency staffers complaining that the only reasons they got their posts was their closeness to Mr. Mamman Daura. Whereas Mr. Kyari worked for Mr. Daura's company for more than 20 years, Mr. Kazaure is married to Mr. Daura's sister.

Thank God this blunder was quickly realized.

Saraki? Jesus. Leaving Saraki in charge, is tantamount to giving Lawrence Anini the Keys to the Central Bank. Saraki do not need days to steal Nigeria to death, he just needs a couple of Hours to bleed us dry, and i am sure he will be the first in Nigeria to overthrow in a Civilian Coup.

This is a man that Single Handedly ran Societe Bank to the ground. In Saner Societies, Saraki should be in Jail for defrauding thousands of Customers of the Bank.

Thank God that the Fish was not given, to this Cat to keep.

Nonsense writeup. Didn't Jonathan travel when Yaradua was in the hospital in Saudi Arabia. Did David Mark take over? The office of the President is not territorial. When the President travels on official trips, he continues to carry on with State activities. It is only when sick and unable to perform the official duties that an Acting President becomes necessary.

trust no politician my brother, they will just set up an ugly event, since the president and vice no dey, the mantle will fall on the SP. none of the travellers can return in 2hours of any ugly event, that's enough time to scatter things.

This is a great testimony for Nigerians.

Saraki? God forbid. A man that is power-hungry.

Leaving our already depleted yam to a hungry goat to keep? Dear Lord, on behalf of Nigerians, I say thank you for saving us from this catastrophe that would have happened.


PMB and Osibanjo would have begged him to return the power if this mistake was made, because this would have been the first civilian coup in Nigeria.
