List of sacked aides not genuine- Osinbajo


The Office of Vice President Osinbajo on Thursday dismissed the trending list of the sacked aides of the nation’s number two man as fake.


On the list, as exclusively reported earlier on Thursday by the Abuja based Daily Trust newspaper are a daughter of former Oyo State governor, Isiaka Ajimobi, a grandson of the chief Obafemi Awolowo and 33 others.

They were reportedly sacked on Wednesday, through the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) on the order of President Muhammad Buhari, who is on a two-week vacation in the United Kingdom.

Daily Trust reported that Osinbajo has over 80 aides attached to his office, more than those of the President.

Spokesman to the Vice President, Laolu Akande, however dismissed the list, although he did not dispute that some aides of his principal were fired.

Akande refuted the list while tweeting on the harassment of a Vanguard newspaper photojournalist by some security men attached to the Vice-president.

He tweeted via his Twitter handle @akandeoj that: “The needless scuffle btw a villa accredited photographer, Mr. Adeshida & one of our security aides earlier today has since been resolved. Incident is regretted & I have apologized to him for any embarrassment caused. Also, a list circulating in the media on d so-called sacked …

…presidential aides is not genuine and ought to be ignored.”
