Ipaye would, however, be assigned to the office of the Vice President as Prof Yemi Osinbajo’s Chief of Staff.
The deployment of Ipaye to the office of the VP follows Buhari’s resolve to operate a single presidency with only one Chief of Staff who would oversee the President’s affairs and a Deputy Chief of Staff who would oversee the duties of the Vice President.
Ipaye has already been briefed of the new development while awaiting official announcement.
Both Osinbajo and Ipaye have come a long way from the University of Lagos as lecturers and when the VP was the Attorney General for Lagos state.
Ipaye was Osinbajo’s Special Assistant when the VP was Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General in Lagos State in the Tinubu administration.
