The Presidency on Thursday disproved claims that the office of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has been sidelined after a change of the Economic Management Team, EMT, headed by Prof. Osinbajo.
The Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, on Channels TV dismissed the claims as false, saying that the presidency is united and working for the good of Nigerians.
According to him, the insinuation that there was a rift between Messrs Osinbajo and Buhari was being spread by detractors of the Federal Government.
“The Vice President is the number two man in the country…The new economic advisory body can also relate with the Vice President as necessary,” Mr Adesina said.
“It’s just some Nigerians who want to drive a wedge between the President and the VP, that read meanings into everything and insinuate but there’s no need for that.”
