The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has advised Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to resign from the position over alleged “well – orchestrated plot to subjugate and humiliate him publicly while the president watches on.”
MASSOB, in a statement issued by its National Leader, Uchenna Madu, on Saturday, said the professor of law should “save his face at least, and if there is any self dignity and integrity left” should walk away.
MASSOB was reacting to President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to sign the Deep Offshore Bill in London with his Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, in attendance and the sack of some aides attached to the office of the vice president.
The group said: “The act of signing a bill in faraway London smacks of irresponsible leadership and a denigrating act of sabotage against Nigeria’s sovereignty.
“And of course, it implies that Buhari may not be coming back any time soon.
“Buhari seeks to regulate the overseas travel of his cabinet members, yet he is always found overseas at the slightest excuse.
“Osinbajo’s aides had been run out of the Presidential Villa and Osinbajo could not lift a finger; now we hear that their access to the Presidential Villa has been restricted and there is nothing they can do about it with a hideous cabal actively running the presidency.
“Osinbajo, a professor of law, should save his face at least; and if there is any self dignity and integrity left, he should be bold enough to walk away from such well-orchestrated plot to subjugate and humiliate him publicly while the president watches on.
“This is yet another proof that the Fulani oligarchy has used the Yorubas to clinch power. And it is obvious that they will never relinquish power to any Yoruba man. Osinbajo should tread the path of honour and resign now if he really has some integrity in him, or they will run him out.”
