“No Crisis In Presidency” – Sanwo-Olu

The Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has insisted that there is no crack in the presidency.

The Governor said any claim to the contrary exists only in the realm of gossips and rumours.

Report emerged that President Muhammadu Buhari had directed Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to, henceforth, seek presidential approvals for agencies under his supervision.

This was followed by the recent appointment of Economic Advisory Council (EAC) and disbanding of the Economic Management Team led by the Vice President

However, Sanwo-olu insisted that there was no crack in the presidency, adding that both the president and the vice-president were still working harmoniously.

Samwo-olu, who was represented by his deputy Obafemi Hamzat, made his position known during the inauguration of the PGF Media and Communications Programme Steering Committee held at the PGF secretariat in Abuja.

According to the governor, “I think it exists in the realm of gossips and rumours. So, there is no crack, at the time, the vice-president went to Zimbabwe to represent this country. It was the prerogative of Mr. President to go but he nominated him.

“Yesterday (Wednesday), the vice-president presided over the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting which is the highest body that determines what goes on in our country.

“We don’t listen to rumours, we deal with facts. The fact is that they are working together, it is just rumours, don’t take it that serious.”
