The seemingly cold war that is existing between the president and his vice president is taking another dimension as a very reliable source who is an aide to the vice president claims that the Vice president, Prof Yemi Osibanjo is at the verge of throwing in the towel.
It is no longer news that the vice president has been on the neck of the president, mounting pressure on him to fulfill most of the promises they made to Nigerians during their campaigns. The issue of N5,000 for all unemployed graduates is one case the Osibanjo is hammering on, that it is a matter of integrity for him .
“Apart from being a respected law professor, the vice president is also one of the very senior pastors at the Redeemed Christian Church of God and he sees is integrity as being at stake here if these promises are not kept,” our source concluded. We also reliably gathered that efforts are being made to appeal to him to be patience with Buhari. Meanwhile, top members of the President’s kitchen cabinet are already positioning the current Minister of Works, Housing and Power, Babatunde Fashola to take over as the vice president, if eventually they are not able to convince Osibanjo to remain.
The news of the vice president being isolated and relegated even on some of his statutory responsibilities by some villa mafia group from the north is everywhere and this according to our source is more frustrating and the vice president is worried about the whole situation, and may resign.
