Former Special Assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on New Media, Reno Omokri, says President Muhammadu Buhari labelled Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, ‘Coordinator of National Affairs’ because the latter “outshined” Buhari last time he travelled to London on medical vacation.
Buhari’s letter informing the legislature of his medical vacation in the United Kingdom, read: “In compliance with Section 145 (1) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended), I wish to inform the distinguished Senate that I will be away for a scheduled medical follow-up with my doctors in London. The length of my stay will be determined by the doctor’s advice.
“While I am away, the Vice President will coordinate the activities of the government. Please accept, the distinguished Senate President, the assurances of my highest consideration.”
Remo Omokri bared his mind via his Twitter account @renoomokri.
He tweeted: “Our constitution was not made by President Buhari. President Buhari was made by our constitution and must be subject to it President or not!
“Where are constitutional lawyers? Please proceed to court to stop this nonsense? Coordinator of National Affairs is not in our constitution!
“I think @MBuhari was not happy@ProfOsinbajo good performance outshined him last time, hence this Coordinator of National Affairs business!
“Thank God for the girls release, but they look more like they came out from a Calabar fattening room than as if they left Boko Haram’s lair.
“What can one even say when a Presidential spokesman praises Boko Haram for looking after Chibok girls well! What can I say? I’m speechless!”
