Buhari Fires 35 Aides In Osinbajo’s Office - Daily Nigerian by RZArecta2(m): 2:16am On Nov 06, 2019
A day after signing Deep Offshore and Inland Basin Production Sharing Contract Amendment Bill into law in London, President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the sack at least 35 out of over 80 aides in the office of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, DAILY NIGERIAN can reliably report.

The president is currently in London, United Kingdom for a two-week “private visit” and is expected back in Abuja on November 17.

DAILY NIGERIAN gathered that the affected aides, who were issued appointment letters in August included some Senior Special Assistants, Special Assistants, Personal Assistants and Technical Assistants.

Credible sources who preferred anonymity said the aides may be formally issued their sack letters on Wednesday.

Preparatory to their eventual dismissal, DAILY NIGERIAN learnt the aides were posted out to some line ministries relevant to their designation last month. The move was allegedly to deny them access to the Villa and reduce the influence of the vice president.

“Although more than half of the aides are under the payroll of donor agencies, the cabal eased them out in order to whittle down the influence of the vice president,” said a source familiar with the development.

“None of them were queried or interdicted for any wrongdoing. It is not about cutting cost, because no aide was sacked in the president’s office nor office of the First Lady, where six more aides appointed less than one month ago. They were just sacked to reduce the VP’s influence.”

Both spokesmen for the president and vice president, Garba Shehu and Laolu Akande respectively, did not respond to a text message seeking their reaction to the development.

Osinbajo’s travails

There seems to be a frosty relationship between the president and his deputy since the beginning of their second term in office, with the president transferring some agencies under the Mr Osinbajo’s control to either his office or some ministries.

Insiders said the president’s powerful handlers, otherwise known as cabal, were unhappy with some critical decisions taken by the vice president in the president’s absence.

Feelers believe that top among Mr Osinbajo’s “crimes” was the sack of Lawal Daura, erstwhile director-general of the State Security Service, SSS, when Mr Osinbajo was acting president in August last year.

Another decision that drew the ire of the cabal was transmitting a letter to the Senate in February 2017, seeking confirmation of then acting Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Walter Samuel Onnoghen.

But the president first wielded the big stick by taking away the Special Intervention Programmes, SIPs, from the vice president’s office to the newly created Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development.

The SIPs include the famous TraderMoni, the Home-grown School Feeding Programme, Government Economic Empowerment Programme, N-Power, among others.



On September 16, Mr Buhari replaced Osinbajo-led Economic Management Team with Economic Advisory Council that will directly report to his (president’s) office.

According a report by PREMIUM TIMES on Tuesday, even the controversial RUGA project has also been taken from Mr Osinbajo’s control after the recommendation of the president’s powerful Chief of Staff Abba Kyari.

Taking a cue from Olusegun Obasanjo?

Shortly after President Olusegun Obasanjo was sworn-in for a second term in May 2003, his relationship with his deputy, Atiku Abubakar, became sour over latter’s alleged plan to contest against him at the party’s primaries.

At the peak of estrangement, the former president fired Mr Atiku’s key aides in order to allegedly settle the political scores.

Those fired by Mr Obasanjo in July 2006 included Adeolu Akande, Onukaba Adinoyi-Ojo, Chris Mammah, Shina Ayati, Sam Oyovbaire, Lawal Jafaru Isa and Garba Shehu.

I'm so angry with the way this clueless government is running the affairs of this country, Buhari is senile, there was clear display of ill-health in him at so many occasions, everyone knew he was sick and infact not fit to run again yet foo.lish Nigerians still voted him due to tribalism, selfishness, greed and illiteracy now look at what is happening. Mention any progressive nation the president always travels outside based on health grounds and run the country from there?. The way things are been administered in this country presently is sad, and u can only feel for Osibanjo the way the are maltreating him because he is human even though he supports their actions, we have never had it so bad like this. It's not supposed to be so! angry

Eeyah but what is the VP's office doing with 35 aids?
Not sure Th Presidents wields such power.

Buharist will claim that Buhari and Osibanjo has the most harmonious relationship than any President and Vice ever did. They will call us rumor mongers.


Osibanjo was dinning at the mercy of Jagaban.
Buhari needed him to win. Yemi would have been fit for the Office of the AG, with his high moral standard and Honesty. Not the VP.

Did I read that the VP has up to 80 aides, what dafuq does he need all that for? Too much waste in the system and that's bad.

Well, I don't like this intimidating attitude of Buhari and his cabal towards Osinbajo. Dude is obviously not interested in 2023 so they should let him serve out his tenure in peace. No matter what they do to him, he has the love of many Nigerians across ethnic and religious divide and if he decides to run in 203, no intimidation from them can stop people from voting for him.

Nigeria is full of illiterate and gullible youths.

The VP is not an employee of the presidency and the so called imaginary cabal don't manage the affairs of the VP.

The presidency can not go to the office of the VP to sack people, that's the job of the VPs chief of staff and the manager of the office of the VP.

This story is full of rubbish and dumb conclusions, the Nigerian news media are tabloid blogsites, they manufacture rubbish and credit the rubbish to see faceless anonymous source, they can not even name 1 of the sacked employees.

A pseudo news media with zero knowledge of the government and how it functions.

Sad.
