Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo says he cannot say for sure that Lai Mohammed, minister of information, Adamu Adamu, his education counterpart, and Abba Kyari, chief of staff to President Muhammadu Buhari, are in their best of behaviour this Ramadan.
Osinbajo, who spoke when Buhari hosted him and some ministers to iftar (breaking of fast) at the presidential villa on Monday, said some reasons make him look forward to Ramadan but those reasons are “are now being seriously challenged”.
According to him, one of the reasons is that his friends are “far less troublesome during the Ramadan”, but he cannot say the same for Mohammed, Adamu, and Kyari this year.
Osinbajo said another challenge is that Buhari presided over the longest federal executive council (FEC) meeting in the council’s history this Ramadan.
He said he looks forward to Ramadan because FEC meetings are shorter while the period lasts but “we shouldn’t expect anymore that meeting will necessary be short during the Ramadan.”
