The Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo over the alleged N33bn in National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) is set to be compounded as plots to begin impeachment process against him in the Senate are brewing
Sources revealed that some senators, goaded by some forces in the villa, are gearing to dust up the report of the House of Representatives Committee which investigated the illicit financial activities within NEMA, amounting to N33bn when Osinbajo acted as President in 2017. Coincidentally Osinbajo is also chairman of the governing board of NEMA. The Senate is expected to resume on Tuesday, September 24.
Indications that the presidency was displeased with Osinbajo emerged when a memo by the President mandating him to henceforth take directives from the President in the management of agencies and parastatals he was constitutionally empowered to oversee, a move many interpreted as whittling the influence of the vice president.
This action on the Vice president comes at a time the President formed the Economic Advisory Council with a mandate to report directly to him which in effect disbands the Economic Management Team, hitherto under the supervision of Osinbajo.
Osinbajo chairs the governing boards of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), the National Boundary Commission (NBC) and the Border Communities Development Agency (BCDA).
