Osibanjo said he was not excluded from Security meeting (Video) by life2017: 12:46pm On Feb 21
Below is a video from Osibanjo twitter account where he said it is not true that he was excluded from security with service chiefs and northern Governors. He said he decided not to attend because he was too busy with so many other things.

Check out the video @ProfOsinbajo’s Tweet below: https://twitter.com/ProfOsinbajo/status/1098524679189483521?s=08




My opinion on the issue:

PDP through Doyin Okupe is promoting Propaganda and fake news over Osibanjo absence in Security chiefs meeting with President Buhari. They claim he was denied entry because the president wanted only northerners in the meeting.


The chief of defense staff General Abayomi Gabriel Olonisakin who is the head of the military is a christian from south west, Ekiti state . He was present at the meeting. Chief of Army staff, Chief of Naval staff and Airforce chief report to him. He is the most senior military personnel in Nigeria and he holds the highest office and rank currently in the military. He gives directives to chief of Army staff, air force chief and chief of naval staff.




The chief of Naval staff Vice Admiral Ibok-Ete Ekwe Ibas who is from cross rivers state in south south and a christian was there at the meeting

How is it a northern affair? So because osibanjo is not there, it now becomes Northern affair? Osibanjo is busy with campaign !!

Below is report from leadership newspaper on security chiefs in attendance

. ........... Members of the President’s cabinet at the meeting include the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, as well as the Minister of Defence, Mansur Dan Ali, and Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Dambazau, among others.

Security chief in attendance were the Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Olonisakin; Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai; and Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Ibok Ekwe.


Also present were Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar; Director General of Department of State Services (DSS), Yusuf Buchi, and some other security heads.

In June 2015 in the early days of Buhari/Osibanjo adminstration, this same fake news was promoted and was found to be false as shown below by premiumtimes.


INVESTIGATION: VP Osinbajo was never excluded from national security meetings
June 18, 2015


Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Vice President of Nigeria
More details are now emerging about the purported exclusion of the Vice President from some National Security Council meetings held so far, days after the presidency formally denied the false speculations describing them as “the creation of someone who just wanted to write something”.

Informed presidency sources said the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo was actually informed and invited to the meeting by the President himself, and that due to other pressing engagements and commitments of the presidency, the VP had to be present at other events, including a foreign trip to Sudan.

I am wondering why people are taking Okupe serious.

So all the service chiefs comprised of only Northerners?

Osibanjo is busy with other things. And those who spread the fake news motives is to say he was excluded because he is a Christian from southern Nigeria.
That motives have been completely debunked by the presence of chief of defence staff and chief of naval staff

Just in case you don't know, chief of defense staff is more like a ceremonial position. None of the chief of staffs report to him.

The Defense Chief is in charge of budgetary allocation to the Chief of Army, Air, Naval.

No military formation from any Service deploys without first briefing and getting approval from Defense Chief.

Service Chiefs own operations and missions but Defense Chief is accountable, wheter good or bad.

Defense Chief is sitting at the top of the heirarchy and all military infrastructures and assets of a country are under his management.

Defense Chief work on political, diplomatic, legal, cultural, mercantile and military interests and his office is supported by staffs specialized to give advisory in these fields of international engagement.

The Chief of Defence Staff control the 3 members of the armed forces which are the Army,Navy & Air force because their heads report to him & it is his constitutional duty to oversee all of them & give direction where necessary but the Chief of Army Staff only control the Army.

The fact that the President can chose to give order and get report directly frombservice chiefs without passing through the chief of defence staff doesn't remove the fact that under normal circumstances they report to him. The president is the commander in Chief. He is the direct boss of chief of defence staff.


We currently have a CDS who doesn't like too much media attention. because of that, people like u have ignorantly interpreted as him being irrelevant.




General Sani Abacha was chief of defence staff to IBB and the took over from IBB. He held that boost from 10 January 1990 17 November 1993


General Abdulsalami Abubakar was chief of defence staff to Abacha and he took over from Abacha.

Please don't confuse the personality of the current CDS for power of CDS

CDS is the go between the Presidency and the army. He has no single command structure under him. Even the brigades guard GOC does not report to the CDS but directly to the president .

Please, for the umpteenth time, the service chiefs report directly to the president and not to any CDS! Only the president can appoint or sack a service chief.

You are mistaken the Chief of Defense Staff under military regime and that under civilian rule. The CDS in military rule is like a chief of staff now; so they naturally are closer to the presidency and have more administrative powers.

Once again, the chief of defense staff is a ceremonial position with no single battalion under its command.

You are wrong. There is no confusion.
Even under the military, the chief of defence staff cannot fire chief of Army staff or chief of naval staff.

Inability to fire does not remove superiority.
