Osinbajo's Aides: We Are Still At Work, No Sack Letters by fergie001(m): 1:53am On Nov 08, 2019
*VP spokesman disowns list

Some aides of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo said to have been sacked by the Presidency have said they have not been sacked.

They spoke in separate interviews with our correspondents on Thursday.

Daily Trust online had on Thursday published a list of some persons said to have been affected by the sacking.

Our correspondents reached out to some of those listed to ascertain if they had been officially informed about the development.

The Special Assistant to the VP on Innovation, Ifeoluwa Adedayo, claimed that he had not received any letter, saying that although he had read about the development in the media, he resumed for work at the Presidential Villa.

When told that there were reports that the access tags of some of them were withdrawn, making it impossible for them to enter the Presidential Villa again, he quickly told our correspondent that he would call back.

“I have also been hearing about it but I have not received any letter. We are still resuming for work,” he claimed.

He had yet to get back as of the time of filing this report.

The Senior Special Assistant on National Boundary Commission, Tola Asekun, in a separate interview asked our correspondent not to believe the reports of their sacking, but he also hurriedly ended the call.

“Don’t believe all those things, please,” Asekun said before hurriedly ending the call.

The Special Assistant on Niger Delta, Arukaino Umukoro; and the Special Assistant on Community Engagement, Feyishayo Aina, did not answer the many calls made to their lines as their telephones rang out.

The telephone line of the Senior Special Assistant, Political, Gambo Manzo, also kept indicating that it was busy when our correspondent tried to reach him.

Also, one of the aides of Osinbajo on National Economy, Ms Yosola Akinbi, said she was not sacked.

Akinbi said she was upset with the barage of calls from her family members and friends seeking to know the truth about her job .

When asked whether she was either redeployed or relieved of her appointment, Akinbi through a WhatApp chat with one of our correspondents, denied the report.

She wrote, “Lol. Capital NO. I am in Ekiti State on a Human Capital Mission.”

When she was asked for an interview, Akinbi said, “I am sure you know that I am a private person. Just love to do my work.”

Akinbi who later spoke with our correspondent on the telephone said, “I know my office will clarify. I am not on that list. I am not even SSA NEC. I am sure they will clarify it. Nothing (laughs).”

When asked about her position in the government, Akinbi said ,“I work in the National Economy (office), but that is not my title, that is not my portfolio. I don’t want to talk about it. Let the office clarify it.”

Others on the list as reported by Daily Trust online include Jibola Ajayi (SA, Legal); Lanre Osinbona (SSA, ICT); Imeh Okon (SSA, Infrastructure); Jide Awolowo (SA, Oil and Gas) and Lilian Idiaghe (SA, Research, Legal and Compliance).

Others are Bala Mohammed (SSA Economy); Edobor Iyamu (SSA, Niger Delta); Dolapo Bright (SSA, Agro Allied Value Chain); Toyosi Onaolapo (SA, Community Engagement); and Bisi Ogungbemi (SA, Political Matters), among others.

The Presidency has, however, asked Nigerians to disregard the list, saying it is not genuine.

The Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the Vice President, Mr Laolu Akande, stated this is a message he posted on his Twitter handle.

“A list circulating in the media on the so-called sacked presidential aides is not genuine and ought to be ignored,” he tweeted on Thursday night.

Meanwhile, a Presidency source told our correspondent that President Muhammadu Buhari might not be aware of the controversial disengagement of the aides, attributing their sacking to “a top presidential aide.”

The source claimed that Buhari was not carried along because the President had earlier approved the redeployment of the aides to ministries.

“While the President had already personally approved the appointment of all the 35 aides reportedly disengaged, he had also instructed their deployment to other ministries as part of a reorganisation of the Presidency proposed to him by the same top presidential aide who is seen to be engaging the VP in a power tussle,” he said.

I think there surely were disengagement letters....not only daily trust reported it, DailyNigerian blew the lid.

The question is: Did Buhari approve of it or its just one man's ego on power tussle?

Perhaps the VP is standing his ground and waiting for Nov 17 when the President will return.

Only the heat generated by the purported sack and to fear of the possible reactions from the masses are enough reasons to withdraw the letters. You can fool some people sometimes but can never fool all the people all the time. Cabal's time gradually getting exhausted. Watch out.

They are likely to be reinstated due to the negative media that follow their dismissal.

Apc cannot get anything right except corruption, intimidation of judiciary officials and disobeying court order.
Buhari cannot control his appointees.
Nigeria need somebody in the mould or Donald Trump.

Sacked by Abba Kyari without the consent of the VP, the office of the chief of staff is not constitutional but a vestige of the military era carried on by Obasanjo for administrative convenience.

the problems I have with people foaming in their mouth here is what's the problem. most of these appointed aides are connected to reach that height. how many son and daughters of poor Nigerians were in the alleged sacked 35 aides?


why worried about rich kids that don't give a damn about your existence. many of us here seek for either financial assistant and job assistance yet you want Yoruba to be worried about Osibanjo that's not putting meal on my table?


this stupidity has to stop, of what value is Ike when he was DSP to his people? Saraki SP to kwara? must we worried about the rich politicians and leaders every time? why worried about people that can sort themselves?

You have damaged completely. So buhari looks like someone you can threaten with your fake public reaction when he has set to do something? You are still a learner.

The type opposition politics PDP is playing has shown the party is cursed. shocked

They think peddling fake news and trying to cause rift between buhari and osinbajo will do them favor.

Reinstated? If you read the story well, they said they also read it on the media but that its fake as no body has been asked to stop work or given a sack letter. One of them even asked the reporter not to believe such stories.
