The Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Babajide Omoworare has denied the claim that President Muhammadu Buhari relegated Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo by traveling without transmitting a letter to the National Assembly to make the latter the Acting President.
“He has no reason to do so. I don’t think there is any way or manner that the office of the Vice President has been relegated. The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria can work from anywhere he is in the world.”
“The only celebrated case was that of the late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, who was ill and could not transmit any letter to the National Assembly. The National Assembly had to work around the situation by ensuring that executive powers go to the Vice President,” Omoworare said
