Why Osinbajo Should Be Impeached With Buhari, Ohanaeze discloses

The Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, the apex Igbo socio-political organisation has stated that the National Assembly should impeach Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo alongside President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to Ohanaeze, Buhari and Osinbajo have failed in their primary responsibility of protecting Nigerians.

The body said Buhari and Osinbajo’s inability to protect Nigerians shows failure of leadership in governance.

Recall that Senators had threatened to serve an impeachment notice on Buhari over his inability to tackle insecurity in the country.

The Senate minority caucus gave Buhari a six-week ultimatum to tackle insecurity in the country.

Reacting, Ohanaeze said Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, stands to benefit if Osinbajo is exempted from the impeachment process.

In a statement by its Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, Ohanaeze warned the National Assembly that “if the impeachment threats served to President Buhari should be taken seriously, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo must be part of the impeachment process, as both of them have failed Nigerians.

“The exemption of the Vice President, from the impeachment threats, shows that APC Presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu stands to be a major beneficiary.”

Ohanaeze said Osinbajo may create loopholes that would favour Tinubu in the 2023 election if he becomes president.

“Ndigbo reminds the National Assembly that attempts to initiate the impeachment process against President Buhari without Vice President Osinbajo are an incomplete process and will create windows and loopholes for the Vice President to play an ethnic card for the West.

“Irrespective of running against Tinubu in the APC primaries, he will use the power of incumbency in favour of Bola Tinubu’s victory which is a contradiction with the body language of the Mr. President, who is likely reluctant to influence the 2023 elections for anyone but whoever Nigerians want at the polls.

“If Buhari should be impeached, then Osinbajo must go with him, both of them should be blamed for the rising insecurity challenges in the country.

“Ndigbo is in support of any Impeachment threats by the National Assembly, but it must serve as a wake-up call for the President and Vice President to be active with their duties, but if they continue to be onlookers and things goes awry, the National Assembly should not exonerate the Vice President for the notice of impeachment, Tinubu stands to benefit if only Buhari is impeached.”

Dumebi Kachikwu, the African Democratic Congress (ADC) presidential candidate, says the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) cannot beat the party in the 2023 election.

Mr Kachikwu, in a statement on Monday, said the two major parties stood no chance of winning as they have failed Nigerians.

“The country has continued to lag behind in all indices of development since 1999 when PDP assumed power, after which it handed over to APC in 2015,” he said.

Mr Kachikwu said the indices of good governance anchored on the rule of law in Nigeria have remained negative since the return to civil rule in 1999.

He urged Nigerians to reinvent the country by voting for ADC, saying the party has the vision and the know-how to turn the country’s fortunes.

APC candidate, Bola Tinubu off to London

Tinubu

The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has travelled to the United Kingdom for a meeting earlier scheduled for last week.

It was learnt that the former Lagos State Governor, Tinubu will meet with an unnamed group in the UK and he is expected back into the country before the official flag-off of the presidential campaign.

Meanwhile, the flag-off of the APC presidential election will hold in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, within the week.

Campaigns for the 2023 national elections will officially kick off on 28 September ahead while that of governorship and state houses of assembly will commence on 12 October, according to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

According to some aides of Mr Tinubu, the meeting was scheduled for last week, but the controversies that trailed the composition of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) led to its postponement.

The sudden trip has also fuelled speculations of another medical trip or meeting with Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and members of his group, some of who are already in the UK.

Last month, Mr Tinubu had a covert meeting with the aggrieved members of the Peoples Democratic Party led by Mr Wike and some other governors.

“Yes, he (Tinubu) travelled to the UK yesterday. He is to meet with some people in the UK. He ought to have left the country last week, but he had to postpone it because of the whole campaign council list. The meeting is not with the Wike’s group and not for a medical reason.

“Yes the consultation with Wike and others is still ongoing, but this is not about that. A group invited him for a meeting. For now, I cannot disclose the identity of the group,” the source said.

Recall that the PCC list generated controversy among the Progressives Governors Forum (PGF) headed by Governor Abubakar Bagudu of Kebbi State. The governors nominated five persons each to be in the campaign council.

However, some of the governors were left fuming when the 422-member list was released by the secretary of the campaign council, James Faleke, a federal lawmaker from Lagos State. Their nominees were not properly captured in the list.

According to a top source in the party, the Director-General of the APC PCC, Simon Lalong and Mr Faleke compiled the list which either excluded the nominees of the governors or wrongfully designated them.

The source familiar with the matter added that a comprehensive list is being generated by Messrs Bagudu and Faleke.

“The position of the governors unsettled Mr Tinubu. The governors were very angry. The governor has a Whatsapp group. They dropped five names of people who will represent their respective states in the campaign council. These names were passed to Messrs Lalong and Faleke (but) unfortunately, a lot happened along the way.

“The resolution is that a new list will be released in the next couple of days. Those nominees of governors will assume their intended designations at the directorate level. There are the heads of directorates and members of directorates. Tinubu could not leave until yesterday morning as he had to resolve the matter,” the source said.

Meanwhile, the PCC, via its spokesperson, Bayo Onanuga, in a statement, said all members of the directorate are to report at the secretariat of the council on Wednesday for a special prayer to commence the flag-off of the campaign and participate in a peace walk.

Controversies had trailed the release of the party’s campaign council list on Saturday. There were speculations that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo declined membership of the committee due to his opposition to APC’s Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket.

However, the spokesperson of the PCC, Festus Keyamo, in a statement, said President Muhammadu Buhari ordered the exclusion of Mr Osinbajo and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, to enable them to concentrate on governance.
