How Buhari Warned Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, To Be Very Very Careful

President Muhammadu Buhari, on Monday night, disclosed that he warned Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, to always stay clear, to avoid being mobbed during the Trader-Moni disbursements, in Markets across Nigeria.

He stated this at the breaking of fast, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, where he hosted top Government Officials.

Buhari, who said that he was upset at the level of poverty in the land, challenged the elites to do something very urgent to ameliorate the pathetic situation.

“When I drive around the country, what upsets me very much, is the status of our poor people in this country – you see young people, the so-called Almajiris with torn dresses, with plastic bowl. They are looking basically for what to eat.

“The question of education (to them) is a luxury. I think Nigerian elites, we are all failing, because I think we should have a programme that will at least guarantee some basic education for our people, no matter how poor they are.

“So, I welcome the Vice President initiate of the School Feeding Programme. If you check in your localities, the enrollment into Schools improved, because a lot of children can get at least one good meal a day. This is the position of this country.

“This ‘market money’, I warned the Vice President. I do not like him to be mobbed, especially the way I see hefty women coming and confronting him, he should be very careful.

“These are very good initiates. Initially, I was quite reluctant, but I must admit that they are very good programmes, and they endear this government to a lot of poor people, because of these N5,000 or N10,000, being given to them as loans.

“They are fantastic programmes, and I have to admit quite honestly, that the Vice President was ahead of me, by insisting on them.

“But he knows me, if he insists I will say ‘okay go and do what you like’. He did it and I am very pleased, as he is being very successful’’, he said.

Osinbajo, who spoke on behalf of the members of the cabinet, said that regardless of ethnic and religious affiliations, Nigerians must continue to be their brother’s keepers, and must work towards building a united nation.

On the Ramadan period, Osinbajo stressed: “Mr President, I must say that there are some reasons I had always looked forward to the Ramadan session. But some of those reasons are now being seriously challenged.

“The first of those reasons, is that during the Ramadan, meetings are usually very short. But, unfortunately last Wednesday, Mr. President seemed to have destroyed that very good notion, by taking us through the longest FEC meeting in the history of the Federal Executive Council.

“So, we should not expect anymore that meetings will necessarily be short during the Ramadan.

“The second is that some of my friends are far less troublesome during the Ramadan. People like Lai Mohammed, Abba Kyari, Adamu Adamu, they are usually very well behaved during the Ramadan. But I am not even sure that that is true anymore.

“So, I think that all we can truly expect now from the session is possibility, what it was meant to do which is to remind us of some of our responsibilities to ourselves as brothers, and to our fellow men/women, especially our roles as Leaders.

“I think it is auspicious that this particular (end of) Ramadan falls at the eve of the new term in Office.

“So, it is an opportunity for us to remind ourselves over the core mandates, which is the welfare and security of majority of our people’’, he said.
