Presidential rift: Osinbajo is not complaining, Buhari replies critics

President Muhammadu Buhari has replied critics suggesting the existence of a crack within his relationship with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

At the commencement of his second term, Mr Buhari cut down some responsibilities delegated to Mr Osinbajo during their first term in office.

Some government agencies under the vice president’s office were relocated and assigned to ministers while some of his aides were unlucky to have their appointments renewed.

Critics described the move as a ploy to whittle down the political influence of the number two citizen who is said to be nursing the ambition to succeed his principal.

In a chat with TheInterview, the president, when asked to rate his relationship with the vice president on a scale of one to ten, said the mutuality between him and his vice is satisfying.

“Perfect,” Buhari answered, querying, “Or has he complained to you?”

He said Osinbajo is not complaining and as such there shouldn’t be any cacophony about the development.
