Despite allegations and insinuations of being made irrelevant in the presidency, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday, November 6, presided over the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.
The Nation reports that the FEC meeting which was held as usual in the Presidential Villa in Abuja, is the second one that Osinbajo is presiding over since President Muhammadu Buhari travelled out of the country.
Legit.ng reported earlier that there was a claim that the office of the vice president, occupied by Osinbajo, was less powerful than the office of the chief of staff.
This topic was raised on Tuesday, November 5, by a member of the House of Representatives, Akin Alabi.
Alabi, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said that this was what was obtainable in every democratic setting. He was reacting to claims by some sections of the country that Osinbajo had been made practically irrelevant by President Buhari.
The lawmaker representing Egbeda/Ona Ara Federal constituency in Oyo state, made this statement in reference to criticisms by Nigerians who took to social media to condemn President Muhammadu Buhari for signing a bill in London while Vice President Yemi Osinbajo was in the country.
Alabi said the chief of staff is an assistant president, while the vice president stands in for the country's leader.
