The immediate past Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, has said Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has confirmed that President Muhammadu Buhari is not in charge of his administration.
Fayose was reacting to Osinbajo’s claim that Buhari was not aware of the plan to arraign the Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Walter Onnoghen until last Saturday.
Justice Onnoghen had refused to appear before the Justice Danladi Umar-led Code of Conduct Tribunal on Monday on charges of asset declaration infractions.
Commenting on the matter, yesterday, Osinbajo absolved Buhari of any wrong doing in the plans to arraign the CJN.
However, Fayose claimed that Osinbajo’s remark was an indication that Buhari was not in charge of anything.
In a statement by his Media Aide, Lere Olayinka, the former governor said: “It should now be clear to Nigerians that President Muhammadu Buhari is not in charge of anything. He might not even be in charge of his existence, not to talk of being conscious of his position as the president of Nigeria.
“Is the Vice President saying that the Minister of Justice can unilaterally file charges against a high profile government official like the CJN?
“What the Vice President just told Nigerians is that the government is truly under the firm control of the cabal that the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, said Nigerians should rescue her husband from. Therefore, Nigerians should rescue themselves from the hands of the cabal and elect a president that will be in charge of his government.”
