- The vice president of Nigeria, Yemi Osinabjo, paid a visit to Kano state on Monday, January 13
- Osinabjo visited the state to commission some major projects in prominent areas
- Among the projects commissioned by the vice president, were Alhassan Dantata flyover and Kano Cancer Centre at Muhammad Buhari specialist hospital
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Monday, January 13, paid a one-day visit to Kano state to commission some key infrastructure projects.
Osinbajo was received by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and Nasiru Gawuna, alongside other state officials at the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport.
During his visit, the vice president commissioned Alhassan Dantata flyover located in Murtala Muhammad Way and Tijjani Hashim in the Kofar Ruwa area of the state.
Moreover, he will perform the groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of the Kano Cancer Centre at Muhammad Buhari specialist hospital in Giginyu.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that following the perceived lingering crisis between Osinbajo and President Muhammadu Buhari, a former presidential aide, Umar Sani, has said that the number two citizen might soon be stripped off of his constitutional duties.
In an exclusive interview with Legit.ng, Sani, who was a former senior special assistant to ex-vice president Namadi Sambo, said some of the events that unfolded in the last few days pointed to the fact that Osinbajo has been cowed by some powerful people in the Aso Villa.
He said the sudden removal of some of the statutory duties initially being carried out by Osinbajo and later removed was an indication that all is not well between the president and his deputy. "There is no smoke without fire and there can’t be all these stringent measures without any reason.
"The vice president ab-initio was allowed to conduct his statutory duties without recourse to Mr. President and all of a sudden he was requested to observe due process through an internal memo requesting him to seek approval for all his actions," he said.
