Osinbajo: I believe in restructuring
Acting President Yemi Osinbajo yesterday said at no time did he describe those calling for the nation’s restructuring as ‘political jobbers’.
The acting president said this in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande.
Akande said Osinbajo had expressed support for state police based on the community policing model and had advocated for devolution of powers and fiscal federalism.
He said his principal was surprised at media report quoting Chief Ayo Adebanjo as saying that he described agitators of restructuring as political jobbers.
According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has been active in supporting states’ rights in several ways, including in fiscal matters, and would continue to do so.
