Meanwhile, a former presidential candidate Dele Momodu has claimed the office of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is at the mercy of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Momodu who is a media mogul said this on Thursday in a reaction to the alleged sack Osinbajo’s aides by President Buhari.

There have been insinuations in some quarters that Buhari is undermining Osinbajo’s office even as the Chief of Staff Abba Kyari took a bill to the Nigeria leader in London, the United Kingdom.

However, Momodu urged Osinbajo not to be deterred by the happenings in the Presidency.

“The Vice President’s position is always at the mercy of The President,” he tweeted on his handle.

“VP Osinbajo should remain loyal to his boss. If they chase snakes to him, he should chase peaceful rats to them.

“Even if they put his desk and chair in the rain, he should borrow an umbrella… NO FIGHTING!

“His life is dependent on God and nothing should frustrate him.”
