‘Osinbajo Never Led A Prayer In RCCG For Buhari To Die’ – Spokesperson, Laolu Akande

Posted by: On November 13, 2019 || Categories: News


Nigeria’s Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has reacted to
another claim by a journalist Festus Adebayo about a supposed rift
between him and President Muhammadu Buhari.

Adebayo, who was
appointed by the Senate President Ahmed Lawan as a spokesman but was
sacked soon afterwards following widespread criticism for his critical
reviews about Buhari’s administration, claimed Osinbajo fell out with
his principal after two “infractions.”

First, Adebayo claimed
Osinbajo engaged in a “prayer coup” when Buhari was away for medical
treatment in the United Kingdom. He claimed Osinbajo with “his Redeemed
Christian Church of God accomplices” in Ogun state, prayed to God to
make him president.

Adebayo claimed Buhari’s ally entered
during the prayer session and “the prayer warriors nearly prayed that
the ground should swallow them when, upon opening their eyes, they saw
the president’s ally with them.”

Secondly, Adebayo said
Osinbajo primed Walter Onnoghen to “package Buhari inside a judicial
casket” during the 2019 elections and the removal of Lawal Daura,
erstwhile Director-General of the Department of State Services on August
7, 2018 also “rankled these owls.”

Osinbajo’s spokesman, Laolu Akande, said the claim were “outright fiction and absolute mischief.”

“Was
it in a church, in which case there would likely be an audio recording?
Who are the prominent pastors or other persons involved that can
testify to what transpired – what are their names,” Akande queried in
the statement.

“Who is the “strong Buhari ally” who made a surprise appearance at the gathering and brought the story back to Mr. President?

“If,
as Adedayo claims, the VP has been hounding and haranguing this Buhari
ally since then, why is it so difficult for him to cry out and publicize
his strange discovery?

“Who primed Onnoghen to “package Buhari inside a judicial casket” during the 2019 elections? And to whose benefit?

“If,
for any reason, the Buhari election was nullified by the judiciary, how
would that benefit his running mate, since they contested on the same
ticket?”

Akande maintained that Buhari and Osinbajo have
excellent working relationship and that the vice president respects his
boss’s leadership.

“But there is a desperation in some quarters to create a division between the President and the Vice President,” Akande said.

Despite
Akande’s insistence that all is well between the two leaders, critics
have pointed to several instances that indicated that the once chummy
relationship between the two may have gone sour.

Most recently,
some of the vice president office aides were sacked, fueling the alleged
rifts. But the Nigerian government said it sacked the aides in an
attempt to “streamline decision-making, cut down multiple authorities
and reduce the cost of administration.”

His refusal to transfer
power when travelling out of the country and signing of a Nigerian law
in the United Kingdom are other instances that critics said were
deliberate attempts to undermine Osinbajo.

There are unconfirmed
allegations that the president is trying to silence his vice president
and also sideline him from the team of men making crucial decisions
about governance.

However, the presidency has always denied any
rift between the president and vice president. In fact, President Buhari
had vaunted the relationship he has with Osinbajo.

But critics
believed his public proclamations were a mere lip service and insisted
that a powerful bloc led by Buhari’s chief of staff Abba Kyari has
sidelined the vice president.
