The presidency also yesterday insisted that there was no rift between the president and his embattled deputy.

The vice president reportedly had over 80 aides who were deployed in many strategic positions, with sources around the corridors of power saying the recent attention around the vice president was aimed at reducing his influence, just as it happened to ex-Vice President Atiku Abubakar shortly after ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo won a second term.

The affected aides were attached to different Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs). One of the sources, who sought anonymity said: “The letters were distributed to the affected aides through the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation. They were not working within the precinct of the presidential villa.”

President Buhari, who is on a 15-day private visit to the United Kingdom, is expected back home on November 17.
