Lauretta Onochie, personal assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on social media, says the president and Acting President Yemi Osinbajo will remain together beyond 2023.
She said this on Facebook and Twitter while reacting to the remark made by Femi Fani-Kayode, former minister of aviation, criticising Osinbajo for saying Buhari treats him as a son.
Osinbajo had said this during a recent visit to Katsina.
But Fani-Kayode took to Twitter to express reservations.
“The President treats me like his son and his brother”- VP. A 60 year old man can say this? We are in trouble,” he had written on Twitter.

Onochie, however, took a swipe at Fani-Kayode, asking why he had chosen to “speak on everything.”
She posted some pictures of Buhari and Osinbajo together with the caption “as it was in the beginning, so it is now, and so shall it be till 2023 and thereafter..’”
“Acting President Yemi Osinbajo saying Muhammadu Buhari treats him as a son and a friend, has become a source of anger and anxiety for Femi Fani-Kayode, alias #FFKFood4Dance,” she wrote.
“But who can blame him? He cannot understand father/son relationship, respect, decency & loyalty. No he can’t.
But Fani-Kayode hit back at her, saying he does not respond to “hired help.”
“Truth is I don’t respond to hired help, especially when they look like a used tampon,” he wrote.
“For me to respond to such creature like Loretta, she would first need to get a facelift and then a big promotion.”
If Buhari decides to contest for another term and wins, his tenure would elapse in 2023.
For me to respond to such an ugly, lousy and shallow creature like Loretta she would first need to get a facelift and then a big promotion.
