The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign state of Biafra (MASSOB) has raised the alarm over what it described as unjust measures being meted to the nation’s Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osibanjo, with a view to humiliating him out of office.
The group said in a statement on Sunday that the stripping of VP’s official attributes is not only unconstitutional but a continued humiliation of Christians in positions of authority in the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari. It wondered why both the President and his Vice have kept silent over the issue.
MASSOB recalled that Osinbajo was unceremoniously removed as Head of the National Economic Council (NEC) on September 16, 2019. It added that following his removal as the Head of NEC, Ministerial Departments and Agencies under his watch were on Tuesday, September 17, directed to report directly to the President while virtually all the aides attached to his office were given marching orders to leave Aso Rock.
A statement by MASSOB’s leader, Comrade Uchenna Madu, said: “Wednesday, September 18, a report from the House of Representatives indicted him for illegally approving funds for National Emergency relief operations.
“After his Media Assistant in a Press Statement dismissed insinuations that the Vice President was found wanting in his approvals of funds and contracts. These sponsored allegations warranted the directive from the office of Mr President that those Parastatals should report directly to Mr President.
“MASSOB views all these subjective frustration as a payback time to Prof Yemi Osibanjo by an unrepentant and unforgiving cabals that has vowed to fulfill the commandments of their Forefather, Othoman Dan Fodio.
“MASSOB wish to remind the southern regions of Nigeria that the perceived sins of Vice President Osinbajo is that he presided over the Special Presidential Panel that indicted Cabal member and former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr Babachir Lawal for the Grass Cutting contract scandal leading to his sack from office and replacement by his cousin, Mr Boss Mustapha.
“Recall also that, the vice president fired another cabal member and former boss of the Directorate for State Security (DSS), Alhaji Lawal Daura, from office while Mr President was away on medical tourism abroad.
Osinbajo was an after-thought as vice presidential running mate to Mohammed Buhari when stakeholders of the Fulani cabals rejected Osibanjo’s godfather, Ahmed Tinubu, on grounds of avoiding the pitfalls of Muslim-Muslim ticket.
“Now that it has worked in Kaduna State and the heavens did not fall, it is time to implement it at the National Level using the National Assembly to impeach the vice president, Prof Yemi Osibanjo to pave way for a Fulani Moslem to replace him.
“Prof Yemi Osibanjo will soon go the way of Honourable Justice Walter Onnoghen, Mrs Oyo Ita, Barrister Obno Obla and Madam Kemi Adeosun. He will be disgraced out of office because he sold and allowed himself to be used against his Yoruba people and Christians in general. He was blinded by the greed and wickedness of his master, Bola Tinubu who will later be the worst hit.”
MASSOB observed that Nigeria is currently sitting on a ticking time bomb saying that the political explosion that will follow the impeachment of Prof Yemi Osibanjo and backdoor implementation of RUGA schemes in southern regions will dismantle the foundation of Nigeria.
It added: “Revolution is raging in Nigeria. The Fulani cabals can never withhold it.”
