- PDP accuses Osinbajo of not running the country.
- Claims the Acting President is merely a figurehead for a cabal running government.
A PDP spokesperson Mr Dayo Adeyeye has accused the Acting President of Nigeria Yemi Osinbajo of being merely a figurehead and claims that a cabal is behing
the scenes running government.
Mr Adeyeye further stated that if the Acting President was actually in charge, he would have assigned portfolios to the two ministers who were recently sworn in after much pressure. he further insisted that although President Buhari duly handed over powers to Osinbajo before leaving the country, it is still being run by a cabal.
Adeyeye said: â€œThe Acting President is not in charge of the country. He is not in charge of anything. This is why nothing is moving forward.
â€œHow do you explain a situation where two of the ministers who were sworn in after much pressure from the people and the National Assembly have not been assigned portfolios?
â€œHe is not in charge. He is a mere figurehead and cannot do anything. The cabals are still in charge. That is why nothing is moving forward in this country. â€œThe two ministers are just idle. They have no offices, nowhere to resume to and nothing to do. What is the essence of their being sworn in then? They are ministers without portfolios.
â€œIt is a constitutional breach on the side of the government because each state ought to have a minister each. Now, these two states had been without ministers for long and after you reluctantly appointed them, you refused to give them offices.â€
