…..Says No Cracks In Presidency
Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has insisted that the relationships in the presidency have no cracks, stating that anything contrary to his claim is just rumours and gossips.
Report emerged that President Muhammadu Buhari had directed Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to, henceforth, seek presidential approvals for agencies he is supervising.
Thereafter the President appointed an Economic Advisory Council (EAC) and disbanded the Economic Management Team led by the Vice President.
Reacting, Sanwo-Olu insisted that the presidency has no cracks while adding that the president and the vice-president were still working happily together.
Sanwo-Olu, represented by his deputy Obafemi Hamzat, stated this during the inauguration of the PGF Media and Communications Programme Steering Committee held at the PGF secretariat in Abuja.
According to the governor, “I think it exists in the realm of gossips and rumours. So, there is no crack, at the time, the vice-president went to Zimbabwe to represent this country. It was the prerogative of Mr. President to go but he nominated him.
“Yesterday (Wednesday), the vice-president presided over the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting which is the highest body that determines what goes on in our country.
“We don’t listen to rumours, we deal with facts. The fact is that they are working together, it is just rumoured, don’t take it that serious.”
