The Presidency has give you causes 35 aides hooked up to the workplace of the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, were dismissed throughout the week.
A report emerged throughout the week indicating that over 30 aides hooked up to the VP had been sacked with their names and portfolios printed.
An announcement signed by Garba Shehu, a Senior Particular Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, and made obtainable to DAILY POST on Friday, stated, “The Presidency needs to verify that there’s, on-going, an unprecedented overhaul of the nation’s seat of presidency, arising from which various political appointments have both been revoked or not renewed within the Second Time period.
“The train, which has been ordered by the President, is to streamline decision-making, reduce down a number of authorities and cut back the price of administration.
“It’s also an applicable response to the overall notion that the Presidency has an outsized and bloated workforce which acts as a drag on effectivity.
“As could have been observed by discerning members of the general public, various political appointees among the many few that served within the workplace of the President were not returned for the Second Time period.
“The workplace of the Vice President, His Excellency Yemi Osinbajo has, in compliance with the directive of the President, equally been shed of various such appointees.
“In finishing up these workouts, the overriding goal is to save lots of taxpayer cash and ship wanted service to the general public. So far as the President is worried, there isn’t a scope for an excuse for administration after getting an enormous mandate to run the nation for 4 extra years.
“Within the mild of this, the Presidency needs to strongly deny rumours of a rift between President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo. The connection between the 2 leaders stays glorious and trusting. Collectively, they are going to script a wonderful future for the nation.
“The media reviews of a soured relationship are originating from the minds and mouths of mischief-makers, who’re determined for entertaining tales from the Aso Rock Villa with which to titillate the general public. This ulterior motive is the idea of the mistaken interpretation given to the latest train within the Presidency.
“There was a streamlining of employees occurring for some time. The President has at all times had fewer employees than the Vice President, and there were at all times plans to scale back the variety of employees on the Villa.
“The streamlining was not private or focused to undermine the Vice President’s workplace, because the so-called insider sources quoted by the media seem to make it appear.
“The President is in absolute control of his government. The media should stop attributing non-existent powers to some people. There cannot be anyone too powerful for President Buhari to control.”
