Daura Sack: Presidency Speaks On Power Tussle Between Buhari and Osinbajo

The Presidency has debunked the report making the rounds that there is a power tussle between Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, and President Muhammadu Buhari.

This was made known by Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity on Wednesday, at the end of the meeting of the Federal Executive Council which was presided over by Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Mr. Adesina said that President Buhari was fully aware of the events that led to the sacking of the former DSS chief, Lawal Daura.

“The Presidency is one. Whenever the President is proceeding on vacation he transmits power to the Vice-President who then becomes acting President.

“On this occasion he also did that. So the acting president has all the powers of a president.

“Now, it is then a matter of decency and we know that the acting president is a decent man. There is no tussle for power, there is no tough battle between him and the president.

“When something like what happened yesterday (Tuesday) would happen then there will be unanimity, there is no way there won’t be unanimity on that kind of decision.

“It is not something that will be discussed with the press but know that there was unanimity in that decision.”

Recall that Osinbajo had on August 7 terminated the appointment of Mr. Daura and directed him to handover to the most senior person in the organisation following the siege at the National Assembly.
