The Presidency said there was no power tussle between President Muhammadu Buhari and Acting President Yemi Osinbajo over the sack of ex-Director General of the Department of State Service (DSS), Lawal Daura.
The appointment of Daura was terminated on Tuesday by Osinbajo over the invasion of the National Assembly by operatives of the DSS.
There were reports that the sack of Daura created bad blood in the Presidency. Matthew B. Seiyefa, the most senior director at the DSS has replaced Daura in acting capacity
Presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina, yesterday said the “Presidency is one” and that the Acting President has all the powers of a President.
He said “The Acting President has all the powers of a President. 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 tough battle between him and the President.
“When something like what happened yesterday (Tuesday) will happen, there then will be unanimity.
There is no way there won’t be unanimity on that kind of decision (Daura’s sack). It’s not something that will be discussed with the press but know that there was unanimity in the decision,” he said.
