Presidential nomination: Presidency debunks claim that it ‘disowned’ Osinbajo

THE Federal Government has debunked claims in the media that it disowned Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on a matter relating to a presidential nomination, stating that the Acting President cannot be disowned by the Presidency.

A release by Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami dated July 6 but made available to Tribune Online on July 7, he stated that “It has come to my notice that a number of media organisations have been distorting and misreporting the proceedings of July 5, 2017 Federal Executive Council (FEC) press briefing, suggesting that the Presidency ‘disowned’ the Acting President on a matter relating to a presidential nomination.

“As the chief law officer of the federation, I would like to make it categorically clear that: the President – and in this case the Acting President – is the Presidency, and therefore cannot be disowned by the Presidency.

“All matters relating to presidential appointments and nominations are strictly a matter for the Presidency to handle. They are not for the Federal Executive Council, and are therefore not discussed at FEC level. This was the point I made yesterday at the press briefing, and which was unfortunately distorted by the media.

“I would like to appeal to the media to take seriously its responsibility to inform the public honestly and accurately, to refrain from distorting or sensationalising the news, and to seek clarification when in doubt.”

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
