No Rift Between Buhari And Osinbajo, Says Presidency by BroJoe1994: 9:16am On Sep 30, 2019

The Presidency on Sunday played down insinuation of alleged rift between President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, saying there was nothing of such.

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina who said this during a television programme monitored by www.makeitglobal.biz, said he could authoritatively confirm that the insinuation of alleged rift was the figment of the imagination of the authors.

There have been speculations of a major rift between Buhari and Osinbajo, with many linking it to political calculations ahead of the 2023 presidential race.

The President had dissolved the Economic Team headed by Osinbajo, and also directed the Vice President to henceforth get approval for some federal government agencies under him.

Also, a former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Timi Frank accused Osinbajo of misappropriating N90billion he allegedly collected from the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) to execute campaigns for the last general elections in the South West.

Frank had claimed that he got the information from sources within the presidency, a claim that Osinbajo had denied and declared his readiness to waive his immunity to sue for libel.

Reacting, Adesina said: “They are insinuations and they remain in the realm of insinuations. The presidency is one; there is no rift between the President and the Vice President. I am glad that the Vice President has said he would sue for libel to clear his name.”

Also responding to the detention of convener of the #RevolutionNow Protest, Mr Omoyele Sowore despite a court order directing his release, Adesina said the President just came back into the country after attending the United Nations General Assembly in United States, and that he would be fully briefed on the matter and take appropriate action.

A lawyer who also appeared on the programme, Mr Jiti Ogunye had declared the refusal of the Department of State Security (DSS) to release Sowore in accordance with the court order as worrisome, saying the development was clearly against the rule of law.
