Vice President Osinbajo Waives Immunity To Clear Name On Fraud




The Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo, says he is ready to waive his constitutional immunity to “enable the most robust adjudication” of several baseless allegations, insinuation, and falsehoods against his person and office.

Naija News reports that the Vice President made this declaration on the micro-blogging site, Twitter, on Wednesday, September 25.

In the tweets, VP Osinbajo noted that he has instructed the commencement of legal action against two individuals, Timi Frank and Katch Ononuju,  the originators of the “odious falsehoods.”

Osinbajo tweeted: “In the past few days, a spate of reckless and malicious falsehoods have been peddled in the media against me by a group of malicious individuals.

“The defamatory and misleading assertions invented by this clique had mostly been making the social media rounds anonymously.

“I have today instructed the commencement of legal action against two individuals, one Timi Frank and another Katch Ononuju, who have put their names to these odious falsehoods.

“I will waive my constitutional immunity to enable the most robust adjudication of these claims of libel and malicious falsehood,” Osinbajo’s tweets added.

Meanwhile, Osinbajo’s readiness to waive his immunity came on the day the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) denied the allegation that it was probing the Vice President.
