Abiola was however silent on the period the NEMA and NAHCON were moved away from the Vice President’s office.

He added that Tinubu equally approved a formal structure for the Office of the Vice President as well as an appropriate number of technical and administrative aides that would work with the Vice President in the discharge of his responsibilities.
