Vice Pres. Osinbajo Locks Out Of Pres. Buhari’s Security Meeting

The Vice-President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo, was ‘locked out’ of President Muhammadu Buhari’s meeting with the National Security Adviser on the orders of the President.

Trent is reporting that a top Government source who pleaded anonymity disclosed on Wednesday that Vice-President Osinbajo was refused ‘security clearance’ to attend the meeting as a result of security concerns by the Commander-in-Chief allegedly over what he described as a “very sensitive meeting”.

According to the source, it was the thinking of the President that it was too early in the day to bring Vice-President Osinbajo into the President’s first security briefing.

The June 1 meeting with NSA Sambo Dasuki, which lasted for hours, was part of what sources called “debriefing process” and was done behind closed doors in the absence of the Vice-President.

Dasuki remained with the president till after 4pm when he left the Defence House, Daily Trust reports.
Buhari and Vice-President Osinbajo are yet to move into the Presidential Villa, 6 days after their inauguration.



  1. Even if it was true! the vice president needed to know what meeting he is attending or not or that being vice president doesn’t mean that the president must carry into every thing intoto. Because at last the president bears all the blame. everyone already know what he is to do. and if they re yet to clearly state that, then its not late. well done amebo
