…it’s reorganization of Presidency

 

The sack of 35 aides of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo is part of  the ongoing reorganisation at the Presidency, President Muhammadu Buhari has  said.

 

Speaking for the first time since they were sacked, Buhari said “it is aimed at enhancing service delivery to Nigerians.”

 

“It is unfortunate that the recent disengagement of some political appointees from the presidency had been given ‘‘ethnic and political” interpretations.

 

“They said 35 people were sacked in the Vice-President’s office. We just created some ministries and we reorganised and people are giving it ethnic and political dimensions is unfortunate,” the President said in a statement.

 

Spokesman Garba Shehu, who signed the statementon Saturday in Abuja, said the president stated this when he fielded questions from State House Correspondents, shortly after his arrival from London on Friday night.

 

On what next  his administration will do after a well-deserved rest in London, the President said: ‘‘we are going to work harder and be accountable.

 

“We have tried to make Nigerians understand why we do certain things. Accountability from bottom to top is absolutely necessary.

 

‘‘Whoever is responsible for government property, [should know] it is public property, it is not personal and he has to manage it according to the law.

 

‘‘That’s what I expect and I think that we have been around long enough to impress on people that we mean what we say.”
