Buhari not teleguiding Osinbajo, says spokesman


Spokesman to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, Laolu Akande, has described as “mischievous” reports that President Muhammadu Buhari is teleguiding Osinbajo.

“Acting President Osinbajo has the full authority and as you can see he is wielding it as and when due,” Akande said yesteraday.

“He is free of any hindrance and the president made it clear in word and deed that the Acting President is fully in charge. That is why Mr. President did the right thing by transferring power constitutionally. 

“All presidential aides report to the Acting President,” he said. 

“The Acting President is signing executive orders, signing bills into law, making appointments, swearing in ministers and permanent secretaries and assigning them portfolios. 

“He takes his constitutional roles seriously as he has always done and will always do whether as Acting President or Vice President,” the presidential aide said.
