Osinbajo is A Figure Head, Decisions Still Made In UK – Adegboruwa

A Lagos-based human rights activist and legal practitioner, Ebun Adegboruwa has claimed that the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo is a figure head although the executive powers were transmitted to him before the ailing President Muhammadu Buhari went on medical vacation 100 days ago.

Speaking confidently with journalists yesterday, August 15, the lawyer stated that the Acting President has not been made to act in full capacity as he ought to do and some presidential decisions are still made in United Kingdom, where President Buhari is receiving treatment.

“As it is, the memos, files and major decisions are taken in London”.

“Acting President Yemi Osinbajo is just a mere figure head at the helm of affairs. The president is still the minister of petroleum”.

“The president never intended to transmit his power to Osinbajo that’s why he made him the coordinating president before the Senate later intervened”.

The lawyer also alluded that some activities are shrouded in secrecy and Nigerians are hid in deceit.

“Although, we see video and picture clips of media teams and others visiting the ailing president but there are some ministers who visit the president and take files to him for signatures”, he said.

However, the two vacant ministerial positions that were earlier missing were filled up and are yet to receive portfolios even after over twenty days.

Adegboruwa lamented this hinging on the continued absence of the President which has affected the decision making. He elucidated on the Section 144 of the Nigerian constitution which should invoke on the question of the President’s capacity.

Another instance of the inability of the Acting President’s to disperse activities duly he mentioned was in the reshuffling of cabinet which remains undecided.

Adegboruwa is often seen in the media criticizing vehemently the Buhari-led administration.
