No power tussle between Buhari and Osinbajo over Daura sack - Presidency

No power tussle between Buhari and Osinbajo over Daura sack - Presidency

Obasa reacted to the invasion in a press statement describing it as sacriligeous and inimical to the growth of democratic values and ideals.

Femi Adesina, special adviser to the president on media and publicity, says President Muhammadu Buhari gave his nod to the sack of Lawal Daura, director-general of the Department of State Services (DSS).

A statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Musbau Rasak said Osinbajo's action did not only stop the chaos but has also brought credibility to the Federal Government both at home and overseas.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered that the two security chiefs, who arrived Aso Rock at different times, were to update the acting president on security developments including the blockade of the National Assembly by security officials.

"This has brought credibility to the government and shown its honest commitment to rule of law and justice", Obasa said.

Osinbajo also described the invasion of the National Assembly by the DSS agents as "a gross violation of the constitutional order, rule of law and all accepted notions of law and order".

"The action of the DSS is condemnable because it's a desecration on the sanctity of the Parliament". Now it's a matter then of decency and we know that the acting president is a decent man, there is no tussle for power, there is no turf battle between him and the president.

The Chairman alleged that Buhari, who is now in London on vacation, planned the Tuesday morning National Assembly siege from there.
