Buhari, Osinbajo removed as Aso Villa occupants



Buhari, Osinbajo removed as Aso Villa occupants

Following the handing-over of government to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on May 29, 2023, Nigeria’s former President, Muhammadu Buhari, and his Vice, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, have been officially removed as occupants of the prestigious palatial residence at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa.

Despite the smooth transition of power, reports emerged indicating that several weeks after the official handover, the names of Buhari, Osinbajo, and the immediate past Chief of Staff, Professor Ibrahim A. Gambari, were still listed as occupants of the iconic presidential residence.

The situation had raised questions among the public about the accuracy and efficiency of the government’s administrative processes.

In a surprising revelation, it was discovered that Buhari’s picture continued to be displayed on the official state house website, along with unchanged details about former appointees during his tenure as President, including Vice President Osinbajo. This oversight sparked further concerns regarding the updating and maintenance of vital government records.

However, following media reports on the issue, a recent check on the Aso Rock Presidential Villa website by journalists revealed that it had undergone a comprehensive update.

As a result, the names of the former leaders have now been officially removed as occupants of the workplace and official residence of the President of Nigeria.

According to SaharaReporters, a reliable news outlet, the Nigerian government has taken swift action to rectify the oversight. The website now prominently features the picture of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on its homepage, solidifying his position as the current President of the country.

Additionally, the website now provides detailed information about Tinubu’s aides, including the Chief of Staff, Femi Gbajabiamila, demonstrating the government’s commitment to up-to-date and accurate public records.

The timely update of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa website has not only alleviated concerns among citizens but also reaffirmed the government’s dedication to transparency and accountability.

With President Tinubu now firmly established at the helm of affairs, the nation looks forward to witnessing the execution of his policies and vision for the country.
