President Muhammadu Buhari is reportedly turning back government officials, including Ministers, who have been trying to undermine Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.
The Nations reports that Buhari has refused to meet with such officials, who were in the UK with files for his signature.
He instead ordered them to take all documents and issues to Osinbajo’s desk.
Sources said the President insisted that his administration runs one Presidency and any attempt to create division will not be tolerated.
“Despite the fact that he is fast recuperating, the President has tried as much as possible to stick to one presidency.
“He has refused to see some government officials who went to London to see him instead of being at their desks to work. He also returned all files and documents to those who brought them to London.
“The President gave stern instructions that all files, documents and issues needing decisions should be taken to the Acting President. He does not want a divided government. Buhari is living up to his Spartan discipline.
“He has restricted audience to two or three personal aides with him in London. This is why there are no leaks associated with his first medical trip this time around,” a top source said.
The source added: “Those involved in taking files and documents to London had their ego deflated. Since their return from the various shuttles, they have been trying to curry the favour of the Acting President or cooperate with him. They did not know that intelligence report had exposed their antics.
“And the truth is that the President has been speaking with the Acting President.”
