The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) has called on Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to resign if he cannot fight back over the sack of his aides.
Report has it that Osinbajo’s aides numbering over thirty (30) were recently dismissed by President Muhammadu Buhari in a cost-saving measure.
Speaking about the matter, the AYCF President General Yerima Shettima noted that Osinbajo should fight back or he might risk being removed as the country’s Vice President.
“One thing about this government is no matter how they pretend, something is wrong,” he told Daily Post.
“The moment they said the President and his Vice were in good terms I knew something was wrong because there can’t be smoke without a fire.
According to him, “If really they want to reduce the cost of governance in Nigeria why not look for a way of placing so many aides there doing nothing on allowances or reduce the number rather than look at the office of the Vice President.
“Some of us know that the battle line has been drawn. Osinbajo is serious being undermined, this is a clear indication that he is a target and they would pull him down.
“I’m surprised that he has not come out boldly to seek the sympathy of Nigerians and speak his mind. He is sitting there quietly because he wants to prove to Nigerians that he is a man of God.”
This is as he added: “The issue of politics is not the matter of God, it’s about issues, professionalism must have to come to play.
“I know he is a Professor of law but he needs to come out and tell Nigerians what is going on, if he continues to stay quiet he will just wake up one morning and discovered that he has been removed.
“The office of the Vice President has been ridiculed so for me its either he’s out to fight or he resigns because if he doesn’t and can’t fight back then certainly they would remove him through any means.
“Nobody thought it was possible to remove the Chief Justice of the Federation but the did it easily, so how more the Vice President that is a spare tyre to the president. The head of the judiciary was removed and they frustrated him and nothing happened.”
