New Vice President May Emerge, As Osinbajo Receives Order To Tender His Resignation Letter

The Yoruba socio-political organisation, Afenifere, has charged Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, to resign his position, following reports of his Office been undermined.

Afenifere said that Osinbajo should do exactly like the former Chief of Staff to ex-Military Head of State, Ibrahim Babangida, Commodore Ebitu Ukiwe, who stepped down after certain decisions were taken without his knowledge.

The National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin, gave the call in a reaction to the reports that some Aides of the Vice President were allegedly sacked by President Muhammadu Buhari. 
Speaking, Odumakin said that stepping down is the most honourable thing for Osinbajo to do at this point in time.

He said: “I cannot fathom what Osinbajo is still doing in that place. He is a Yoruba man, and our people say Iku da jesin (death is more honourable than certain indignities). Except if he has become a hostage of a sort.
“This is the time to remember Ebitu Ukiwe, who resigned as IBB’s Chief of General Staff, because some decisions were taken about Nigeria without his knowledge. That was under Military rule, based on fiat.”
