President Muhammadu Buhari, from his recuperation room in London, has reportedly been resisting attempts by some government officials, including ministers to undermine Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, The Nation reports.He has refused to see such officials who sneak to the U.K with files for his signature, it was gathered yesterday. Buhari, authoritative government sources said, rejected the files and asked the affected government functionaries to take all documents and issues to Acting President Osinbajo.

He has also refused to grant audience to ministers and some presidential aides who indicated interest to see him. But the President met with First Lady Aisha during her recent trip to London, contrary to social media reports.

Sources said the President insisted that his administration runs one Presidency and since there is an Acting President in place, any attempt to create a division by anyone will not be tolerated.
