Ozekhome Warns Osinbajo, Tinubu
Legal luminary and human rights activist, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), on Tuesday said President Muhammadu Buhari will soon ease out Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) loyal to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
According to Ozekhome who spoke in a chat with Daily Independent, the move is part of plans to make the two leaders feel unaccommodated in APC and ultimately discard them.
He said the action is part of a grand plan on who will take over from President Buhari when his second term in office expires in 2023.
” One thing I want to assure Nigerians is that going by the trajectory of President Buhari’s persona, the VicePresident Yemi Osinbajo, and the Tinubu group will be rendered more and more impotent, unaccommodated and discarded.
“The battle for the heart and soul of 2023 has already earnestly begun. Read my lips,” he said.
Naija News reports Ozekhome’s submission is coming a few days after the President replaced the Economic Management Team headed by Vice President Osinbajo with an Economic Advisory Council and also dissolved the presidential asset recovery committee set up by Osinbajo when he was acting president of the country.
Some sources claim there is a growing rift between the president and the vice president occasioned by the build-up to the 2023 presidency but the presidency in a statement signed by Laolu Akande, spokesperson to Osinbajo denied such claims.
