Buhari’s controversial letter shows President does not trust Osinbajo – Group

A non-governmental Organisation, Advocacy for Integrity and Economic Development (AIED), said based on President Muhammadu Buhari’s controversial letter to the Senate informing the upper chamber of his medical leave, it came to the conclusion that the President does not trust Vice-President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.

AIED stated this in a statement released by its Director of Research and Publicity, Comrade O’Seun John, where it alleged that a cabal within the presidency is plotting to create confusion in the country by its continuous interference with the decision of the President.

The statement reads, “We are extremely saddened with the content of President Buhari’s letter where he neglected tradition and voice of sanity to dance to the tune of political vampires by importing a lexicon alien to our Constitution. While we are aware of the unambiguous provision of section 145, we are frightened by signals such as this on the peace and unity of our country.

“The new designation of Professor Osinbajo can only be interpreted to mean that President Buhari does not trust him enough to act as the President in his absence. With this reality, we are now forced to ask: who does President Buhari truly recognise as the Acting President? This act has put paid to any form of doubt that the powers controlling the affairs of the country have greater influence and perhaps, control than the vice-president, Professor Yemi Osinbajo”.

Meanwhile, Prof. Osinbajo in a post on his twitter handle, @ProfOsinbajo, said President Buhari transferred power to him when asked by a follower.

Osinbajo wrote: “He did Sir. He transmitted a letter to the Senate in compliance with S.145 (1) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).”

Buhari, in the letter stated that the vice-president would “coordinate the activities of the government” in his absence.
