Osinbajo denies calling restructuring advocates ‘political jobbers’

Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo

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 issued by his spokesman, Laolu Akande, in Abuja on Tuesday, “At no time did the Acting President say that those asking for restructuring were political jobbers looking for appointments. 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.”

It noted that while several newspapers and media outlets reported 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 added: “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.
