President Muhammadu Buhari has been warned to properly manage the crack in the presidency to avoid national crisis.
A group known as the Progressive League said the president should be wary of people of tainted character and corruption tendencies not to cause blemish on his integrity.
The group at a press conference in Osogbo addressed by the Osun State Coordinator, Olusanjo Fajobi, on Wednesday was reacting to the alleged crack in the Presidency which led to perceived denigration of office of the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
This is just as a Development Activist, Comrade Waheed Saka said the crack in the presidency should not be allowed to snowball into national crisis.
They alleged the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari as the mastermind of the crack, with the Vice president as the main target.
Fajobi said, the office of the vice president and by extension governance of the country must never be undermined by any hegemonic cabal, which according to him, Kyari represents.
He said: “The same Abba Kyari has been alleged severally to be a corrupt subset of an incorruptible government of President Buhari and Vice President Osinbajo administration, how Mr President continue to tolerate his excesses is still a mystery.
“As a group, we have no doubt in the triumph of truth over falsehood as the new campaign of calumny and consistent lies from the Chief of Staff against the vice president will fail because, the attack is not in the best interest of the country but an Hausa- Fulani agenda.
“It is a tragedy and highly unfortunate that somebody with official access to the President, for selfish interests, are creating the division within the top echelon of the government. He has constitutes himself to be the official cog in the wheel of anti- graft war of this administration.
“It is more so embarrassing that the referred office of the chief of staff has become the national headquarters to spread unfounded rumours within the administration to cover up financial crimes and pursue a feudalistic agenda.
“Kyari is the chief confusionist and very unfortunate Mr President refused to sanction him for duping people using his closeness to Mr President to blackmail many of his victims. It is disheartening and a contradiction, that the most corrupt Chief of Staff in the history of our nation is serving the incorruptible president ever in history of our country”, he stressed.
Also, Saka said Kyari arguably the most powerful appointee in the country has no mutual vision with the president and the vice president on their Next Level Agenda, saying he has been alleged to be a very corrupt part of incorruptible government.
“We have not forgotten the various allegations against the same chief of staff regarding the MTN bribery scandal, dollar subsidy scam and many others.
“Students and scholars of Politics will one day unravel how and why the president tolerated his chief of staff to such a level.
“In fact, looking at the roll call of those attacking vice president Osinbajo, they all have one thing in common, corruption, how can the next level agenda work for the people? he queried.
