A top official has disclosed that the presidency cabal are very angry with the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo.

According to the source, the cabal are shocked at the very many sponsored news publications and articles” in the media accusing them of undermining/attempting to undermine Osinbajo.

However, he claimed that phone calls have been intercepted by the acting president’s aides and associates, telling editors and news sites what to publish and how the stories should be.

He disclosed that the acting president is loyal to the president and is not ambitious but has failed to call those around him to order.

He further stated that obviously there is division in the presidency and information being circulated on newspapers and social media platforms steadily point accusing fingers at Buhari’s associates for not co-operating with Osinbajo or whipping up sentiments against him.

He revealed to Dailypost that all these escalated after Buhari’s departure on May 10 for further medical attention in London.

“While I am not aware if the President’s team has meet to complain this to the AP, they are not happy with the way he is acting as if everything is normal”, the source said.

“In truth, Prof. Osinbajo has been singled out as an excellent man and someone that has proven to be a great choice of second in command. Unfortunately, those around him who act on their own perception and promote discord in the media.

“I can authoritatively tell you that phone calls have been intercepted by Prof. Osinbajo’s aides/associates, telling editors what to put in the paper; telling news sites publishers how they want story to appear; making some disclosures to outsiders.

Asked what is likely to be done if the situation persists, the source said he could say a little about that.

“What I know is that the division in the presidency is clear and you will recall the recent development where Prof. Osinbajo said something and some officials were said to have disagreed.”

“In terms of performance, Prof. Osinbajo is highly regarded and even though not all that he does may go well with some people, many officials score him high.

“But this issue of his people trying to make him look like a victim because President Buhari away in the UK is not being taken lightly. You are in the media, how many news have you seen against the AP?

“So why would some people be doing such against those they believe are the ‘cabal’. Those behind this in the presidency and their collaborators outside must watch it because their cover has been blown. If they didn’t know, let them know now.”
