Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has condemned the replacement of the Economic Management Team (EMT) led by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo with Economic Advisory Council (EAC).
The presidency, in a statement, Monday, said the EAC will have monthly technical sessions as well as scheduled quarterly meetings with the President.
Buhari, on Tuesday, also dissolved the Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property (SPIP) constituted by Osinbajo with Mr Okoi Obono-Obla as Chairman.
However, Fani-Kayode, reacting said Buhari by dissolving the economic management team has relegated and treated Osinbajo with contempt.
On his Twitter page, he wrote:
“Despite his constant fawning on Buhari, his cowardly and quisling disposition and his penchant to defend the indefensible, Osinbajo seems to have been relegated and treated with disdain and contempt by the object of his praise and the recipient of his worship.
“First he is thrown off the Economic Team,then some parastatals are removed from his supervision and finally he is told that he must get presidential approval for any expenses he seeks to incur.
“This is what happens when you hold yourself out cheaply to those who despise you.”
