Ganduje’s aide, Yakasai mocks Osinbajo, calls him ‘Vice President Academics’

NEWS DIGEST – Governor Abdullahi Ganduje’s media aide, Salihu Tanko Yakasai, famously known as Dawisu, has described Prof. Yemi Osinbajo as ‘Vice President Academics.’

Mr Yakasai made the mockery remark via his official Twitter handle @dawisu, on Wednesday while responding to a tweet by one @bhulaskonsult.

@bhulaskonsult had asked, “It seems everyone in Nigeria is in New York for UN Assembly?”

Responding to the Tweet, Mr Dawisu said, “Vice President (Academics) is still around sir.”

This stirred reactions from Nigerians on social media, who claimed Ganduje aide’s response was an insult to the office of the Vice President.

Reacting to the tweet, @dondekojo said “Dawisu insults and denigrates SW APC at every turn, yet they keep clapping for him. Ki olorun ma se wa ni eru aye.”

Another @theofficialFEMI, said “On a more serious note, Dawisu not only insulted Osinbajo in that tweet but also the entire South West. This is the second time he has done such publicly. Enough reason for him to lose his job. More than enough reason for SW APC youth wing to report him.”

@yojora also wrote “As far as I’m concerned, Dawisu is only tweeting the things that reflect the feelings of his boss & his cohorts.”

@theofficialFEMI, said “If Dawisu still has a job by weekend then I will completely give up on South West APC.”

Another @iykimo wrote “Dawisu is telling you guys what his bosses think about your MCM. Some of us have been shouting prior to the 2019 presidential elections that supporting GMB based on ‘it’s our turn in 2023’ is politically naive. It’s like supporting Abacha to handover to you.”
