President Muhammadu Buhari was scheduled to travel to the Niger Delta region to commission the process of cleaning up in Ogoni land. However, to everybody’s surprise, Buhari was represented at the event by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
According to the presidency, the delegation of the presidential visit to Osinbajo had nothing to do with the threats of the Niger Delta Avengers, who vowed to kill Buhari if he set foot within the region.
Apparently reacting to the development, Reno Omokri, a former special assistant on new media to Goodluck Jonathan, wondered if there is a division of labour in the presidency.
In tweets posted on his official Twitter handle on Thursday, June 2, Omokri noted that Buhari usually embarks on foreign trips, while his vice represents him at events held in Nigeria.
Is there a division of labour in the Presidency? PMB for foreign trips and @ProfOsinbajo for local trips? #AsoRockDivisionofLabour
Reno Omokri (@renoomokri) June 2, 2016 Riddle: What does Aso Rock have in common with airports? Answer: They both have an international wing (PMB) and a local wing (Osinbajo). — Reno Omokri (@renoomokri) June 2, 2016
Meanwhile, Nigerians also wondered why the president ignored Rivers state and did not have time for common people.
