KEYAMO: BUHARI CHOSE TO LOCK HIMSELF UP IN THE VILLA AFTER COMPLAINTS OF TOO MANY TRIPS



Festus Keyamo, Lagos-based lawyer, has joined those commenting on the recent cancellations of the trips of President Muhammadu Buhari.

In the last two weeks, Buhari has aborted three trips. Two were within the country – Lagos and Cross Rivers states – and the other is the ongoing 49th Extra-Ordinary Summit of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in Dakar, Senegal.

Below is Keyamo’s reaction:

“On a lighter note, pple complained that PMB travelled too much, so he decided to lock himself up in the Villa. Now pple want him to come out,” he wrote on Twitter.

Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has represented the president on all the occasions, and Nigerians have also reacted to that.

While some have criticised Buhari for delegating Osinbajo at the last minute, others have argued that nothing stops the vice-president from standing in for his boss when the need arises.

Defending Buhari’s action, Femi Adesina, special adviser to the president on media and publicity, said Buhari had the right to ask Osinbajo to represent him.

“The presidency is one. The president has a right to delegate duties to his deputy, who is the vice-president, and that is what he has done,” he told TheCable.
