Historically, Buhari’s 2nd eventually becomes defacto head of govt —political pundit reminds


Efio-Ita Nyok|1 March 2017 Going by the positive public rating Nigeria's Vice/Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, is currently enjoying from the nation's populace sequel to the medical treatment of President Muhammadu Buhari abroad, Nigerians are polarised over a debate bothering on the relative unpopularity of the President. Nigerian-born, World Bank consultant, social entrepreneur, political pundit and public affairs analyst, Princewill Odidi, has contributed to the ongoing debate. For the Atlanta-based social commentator Buhari, historically, is reputed to handing over power to his second, who eventually becomes the de facto head of state. 'Those who say credit to Osinbajo may cause rift with his boss Buhari are greatly mistaken. Buhari from history is known to delegate power to his next in command who eventually becomes the de facto head of government. 'Those old enough would remember his second in command In 1984 Tunde Idiagbon how powerful he was. His second in command initiated the war against indiscipline WAI and environmental sanitation.' Odidi concludes his argument by positing that Osinbajo present positive credit is to the best interests of the APC: 'So Osinbajo present ratings is the best thing to happen to the APC government. Osinbajo brief stint this past weeks is the only hope APC has for 2019.' Efio-Ita Nyok
