You are playing with fire- FFK reacts to allegations of some "cabals" attempting to stop Osinbajo from being acting president

Yesterday there was an uproar in the polity after it was discovered that President Buhari's letter to the senate regarding his medical trip to the UK, did not indicate that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo would assume the office of an acting president.
