No fewer than 127 aides are serving President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.

Of the 127 aides, four are a little bit above the rank of ministers; 18 are aides that are paid for by donor agencies; 56 are aides of varied ranks whose emoluments could not be determined while 49 are on the rank of special advisers whose emoluments are captured by the Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission.

The 49 aides whose emoluments are captured by the RMAFC are entitled to N2.48bn within a four-year tenure.

Some of the aides are attached to the President’s wife, Aisha; Vice-President’s wife, Dolapo; Chief of Staff to the President and some ministers such as the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Information and Culture.

According to a government document obtained by one of Punch correspondents, the aides are classified into five categories: top aides, Special Advisers, Senior Special Assistants, Special Assistants and Personal Assistants.
