If your boss can’t trust you why are you still there? Fani-Kayode asks Osinbajo

Published

Fani-Kayode Osinbajo

A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has once again hit hard at Vice President Yemi Osinbajo over claims that he has been sidelined by President Muhammadu Buhari.

He added his voice to the series of criticisms trailing President Muhammadu Buhari’s signing of the amended Deep Offshore Act by Buhari in London on Monday.

The Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, took the bill to Buhari in London. A photo of the president signing the bill with Kyari standing beside him has sparked outrage on social media.

Many Nigerians questioned why Kyari took the bill to the president and also criticised Buhari for not handing over to Osinbajo who could have signed the bill in his absence instead of taking it to London.

Reacting to the outrage, Fani-Kayode asked Osinbajo to resign because his boss does not trust him.

This is not the first time the former minister will be asking Osinbajo to resign. He made the call in September in his reaction to claims that Osinbajo had been sidelined and stripped of some of his powers over some Federal Government agencies under his supervision.

“How do you describe a VP that insists on remaining in office after his boss refuses to hand over power to him when he goes on leave and instead gets his Chief of Staff to fly over to London to sign legislative bills into law?

“If your boss can’t trust you why are you still there? he added.
