Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, has expressed surprise at the news report quoting Chief Ayo Adebanjo as saying he described those agitating for restructuring as political jobbers.
According to a statement by his spokesman, LaoluAkande, at no time did the Acting President say that those asking for restructuring were political jobbers looking for appointments.
He said the video, audio tapes and full text of his speech at the National Security Summit organised last week by the Department of State Services, DSS are publicly available.
While noting that several newspapers and media outlets reported Prof. Osinbajo’s said speech last Wednesday, he stressed that not one of the publications made such a blatantly inaccurate claim that he said those asking for restructuring were political jobbers.
Besides, he argued that the debate on restructuring is an important one and the calls for restructuring cover a wide range of legitimate and constitutionally valid issues, adding that indeed all Nigerians have both a right and a duty to advance their arguments on the subject.
“The acting president himself has expressed support for state police based on the community policing model, advocated for devolution of powers to the states and fiscal federalism.
