Afenifere Slams Buhari For Giving North-West Nine Top Ministers

Yinka Odumakin, the spokesperson of Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, has noted that the office of the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, is been undermined.

Odumakin in his statement stated that the office of the Vice President has been assaulted.

He stated this in reaction to President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to sign a new bill on offshore oil fields in London.

Naija News had reported that President Buhari’s Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, travelled to London on Monday with the bill for the President’s assent.

The incident was greeted with reactions from Nigerians and prominent individuals.

Odumakin while speaking on Channels Television’s Programme, Politics Today said: “There have been serial assaults on that office for a long time now.”

He further stated that since Vice President sacked Daura, there has never been any data transmission to the National Assembly whenever the president is travelling out of the country.

He added that the functions attached to the office of the Vice President has been stripped and many of them have been transferred 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”.
