Osinbajo: Acting President denies calling those agitating for restructuring political jobbers

 Yemi Osinbajo

The news report had quoted Afenifere chieftain, Ayo Adebanjo, as saying Osinbajo lambasted advocates of restructuring.

Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has denied media reports quoting him as calling those agitating for restructuring "political jobbers."

The news report had quoted Afenifere chieftain, Ayo Adebanjo, as saying Osinbajo lambasted advocates of restructuring.

A statement issued on Tuesday, August 8, said the report is "blatantly inaccurate."

The statement issued by the Acting President's media aide, Laolu Akande, said Osinbajo's speech at the event is publicly available for verification.

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 several newspapers and media outlets reported Prof. Osinbajo’s said speech last Wednesday, not one of the publications made such a blatantly inaccurate claim that he said those asking for restructuring were political jobbers,” the statement said.

"Besides, the debate on restructuring is an important one and the calls for restructuring cover a wide range of legitimate and constitutionally valid issues. Indeed all Nigerians have both a right and a duty to advance their arguments on the subject."
