Osinbajo made the comment on Wednesday, October 14, 2015, during the ongoing 21st National Economic Summit in Abuja.

“If we pick up somebody here and want to try him, I know how many calls I will get from people in this room,” Osinbajo said.

“I’ve had the experience in public service and I don’t mind being the tough guy. I’ve sacked people that needed to be sacked. So there are no sacred cows, the rules will be applied anyway,” he added.
