Recall that President Buhari was in the news for a statement he made in an outing abroad where he was said to have described Nigerian youths as lazy.
For the recent statement, his staunch critic who had advised him ton quit Buhari’s government after what he perceived as humiliation is giving him kudos.
The Social Investment Programme 9SIP0 was removed from the office of the Vice President and transferred to the newly created ministry.
He was also removed as the chairman of the National Economy Committee (NEC) after it was scrapped, The newly formed committee was mandated to report to the president directly.
The recent controversy was the sack of some aides from Osinbajo’s office. This has made many to insinuate that his principal is trying to reduce his relevance.
