The pan-Yoruba group Afenifere has claimed that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has suffered from “serial assaults,” Naijaparry reports.
This news medium understands that the Chief of Staff Abba Kyari had travelled to London on Monday to submit a new bill to President Muhammadu Buhari for his assent.
The development had caused outrage just as the reported sack of some aides in the office of the Vice President by Buhari.
According to the Spokesman of the Afenifere Yinka Odumakin, these situations showed that Osinbajo has been badly treated.
“There have been serial assaults on that office for a long time now,” Odumakin told Channels TV.
“Since after Osinbajo sacked Lawan Daura, there has never been any data transmission to the National Assembly whenever the president is travelling out of the country.
“Outside that, we have seen that most of the functions given to his office have been stripped. Many of them have been taken to the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs.
“You can say that most of those functions are at the discretion of the president but the question of the President’s transmission of power to the Vice President when he is leaving the country is a constitutional matter.
“The constitution says that when the President is going out of the country, he shall write to the National Assembly, transmit to the Vice and when he comes back, he will send another letter… that has not been done in this case.
“What we have now seen is the Chief of Staff, taking bills to London for the President to sign.”
