Vice President Yemi Osinbajo

The campaign of calumny by a certain cabal in the presidency against the Vice President’s office is an open secret.

This has prompted some well-meaning Nigerians to call for Professor Yemi Osinbajo’s to resign his Vice President’s position.

But not everyone agrees that Osinbajo should cave to such unwarranted pressure from a certain power block. Some of those are the Yoruba elders.

The elders under the auspices of the Yoruba Council of Elders, YCE advised the Vice President against resigning his position.

In an interview with The Punch, the Secretary-General of the YCE, Dr Kunle Olajide said it was obvious that some persons were “seriously” working against the Vice President, saying the 2023 presidential ambition of some of Osinbajo’s persecutors was the reason for doing this.

The Yoruba elders also advised President Muhammadu Buhari to remember Osinbajo’s loyalty to him and refuse to be used by some power against his Vice President.

“We know like other Nigerians that there are enough signs that some people are working against Osinbajo but who the people are, I don’t know.

“It is obvious that some people are working against him and unfortunately, it appears as if Mr President is dancing to their tune.

“I will urge Mr President to remember the Vice President’s loyalty to him in the past four years, especially when he was out of the country for three months and refused to allow unguarded ambition to push him,” the YCE scribe said.

According to Olajide, the elders’ council did not support the advice given by some people to Osinbajo to resign his position.

“President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo hold the ticket together. Both of them were elected on a joint ticket, so Osinbajo should not resign,” he said.
