President Muhammadu Buhari has sacked 35 aides working in the office of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, according to Daily Nigerian.
News have confirmed the development from senior presidency sources.
Buhari, who is in the UK, approved the sack of the aides on Tuesday. “Osinbajo is hoping that President Buhari will rescind the decision,” a senior presidency official told TheCable, maintaining that the sackings were done by a presidential aide, not the president himself.
The development comes amid speculations of a frosty relationship between the number one and two citizens since the president’s second tenure.
