Buhari’s Top Aide In Trouble
The arrowhead of the cabals in President Muhammadu Buhari’s government is in trouble for trying to usurp the power of the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.
Facts emerged that the top aide had been performing some duties beyond his constitutional role and his plan to usurp the constitutional role of the vice president was exposed prior to the journey of President Muhammadu Buhari to the United Kingdom.
Investigation revealed that the said aide had been hiding information from other aides, including the media aides so that he could be liaison between the president and the vice president.
According to a top government functionary, the aide advised Buhari not to transfer government to Osinbajo but should limit his role pending when he returns from his medical trip in United Kingdom.
The aide also suggested that Osinbajo should not play any role on the forex issue and some economic issues, so that it would not outshine the president.
It was also gathered that President Muhammadu Buhari was angry with the aide for failing to inform the vice president, the President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki and Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara about his plan to travel to UK for medical follow-up.
However, he was dazed when President Muhammadu Buhari personally called the vice president, Osinbajo, the senate president Saraki and Speaker House of Representatives into his office to publicly transfer power to the vice president.
At present, some of the antics of the aide have been exposed and according to findings, Buhari may remove him when he comes back from the UK.
