The release reads in part, “Our attention has been drawn to reports making rounds that some government officials tried to bypass the authority of the Acting President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo by taking files to recuperating President Buhari in London.
“We commend President Buhari for standing by the constitution and directing that all files should be taken to the Acting President. The President, by this action has restated his implicit confidence in the leadership of Ag. President Osinbajo.
“It is obvious that the cabal and a tiny clique of power mongers are trying to frustrate the smooth running of government. We put them on notice that we will resist any attempt to undermine the authority of the Acting President.
“We also warn that nothing untoward must happen to the Acting President. The mysterious death of late M.K.O Abiola is still ever green. There will be severe consequences if similar circumstances repeat itself.
“We commend the exemplary leadership of Ag. President Osinbajo so far and asks him to continue to stir the ship of state as he deem fit. We are solidly behind him.
“While we continue to pray for the restoration to full health of Mr President, we urge cabinet members and all government officials to cooperate with the Acting President as he continues to work for Nigerians. We ask for the cooperation and support of all,” they said.
