President Muhammadu Buhari has suspended some of the aides of Vice-president, Yemi Osinbajo.

According to report, about 35 of the aides were sacked.

Osinbajo, it was learnt, had more aides than President Buhari. Some of them were appointed while Osinbajo was acting as President when Buhari was out of the country for over 130 non-consecutive days in London in 2017.

A top source at the Presidency said, “It is true that many of VP’s aides were given termination letters last night. However, I cannot confirm the exact number because it was not done in public. But you know it is political.

“Some of those dismissed are those who have been made redundant since the VP’s duties have been reduced and some of the social investment programmes have been put under other ministries.”

The VP, who was saddled with the responsibility of running the economy as well as the social investment programmes in the first term of the President, is believed to have twice the number of aides that work directly with the President.

Aides to the Vice-President as of 2017 according to our source was about 52 while that of the President was 25.

However, other appointments were said to have been made for Osinbajo which were never made public.

Some others, it was learnt, were being paid by donor agencies and not directly from the Federal Government’s purse.

The President appointed additional aides for Osinbajo in August 2019.

They include Ahmad Zakari as Special Adviser on Infrastructure, Obafela Bank-Olemoh, as Senior Special Assistant on Education Interventions, Louis Odion as Senior Technical Assistant on Print Media, and Ajuri Ngelale as Senior Special Assistant for Public Affairs in the Presidency.
