Speaking to DAILY POST on reactions trailing Osinbajo’s absence, our source said the VP may not be granted access to such meetings soon.
The source who is well-connected to many Security agencies and their top echelons reminded those accusing Buhari of sidelining the Vice President that Osinbajo is a legal luminary, not a security expert.
His words: “I am sure he would have been invited if he had security background. Being a Professor of Law is fine, but in terms of intelligence and access to security information, you are no where near the rank of Colonel or equivalent in the Nigeria Military.”
“The truth is that the military hierarchy would not even feel comfortable saying some things in his presence.
“I can tell you that they respect Prof Osinbajo as VP, but they cannot trust him with information yet.”
