MASSOB tags Osinbajo’s ‘maltreatment’ a humiliation of Christians



Daura’s sack not enough, Saraki tells Osinbajo

A Pro-Biafra group, the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), has described the current ‘travails’ of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo as a humiliation of Christians in President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.

The group, in a statement on Sunday by its leader, Uchena Madu, also called on President Buhari’s aides to stop maltreating the Vice President.

According to MASSOB, the ‘subjective measures’ against Osibanjo by “vicious Fulani cabals dictating the affairs of Buhari” were calculated to suppress Christians in the country, adding that President Buhari’s silence on the issue was “hypocritical silence”.

“The unconstitutional stripping of Prof. Yemi Osibanjo’s official attributes attached to the office of the Vice President of the Federation is continuous humiliation of Christians in high positions of current administration of President Mohammed Buhari.

“MASSOB recalls that on Monday, September 16, 2019, Prof Yemi Osibanjo was removed unceremoniously as Head of the Statutory National Economic Council. On Tuesday, September 17, agencies and ministerial departments under his watch were redirected to report directly to Mr President.

“Same day, virtually all his aides attached to the office of the Vice President were given marching orders to leave Aso Rock. MASSOB views all these subjective frustration as a payback time to Prof. Yemi Osibanjo by unrepentant and unforgiving cabals that have vowed to fulfil the commandments of their forefathers”, MASSOB alleged.
