Tinubu: Why Osinbajo should be impeached with Buhari – Ohanaeze

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

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

According to the body, Buhari and Osinbajo’s inability to protect Nigerians demonstrates a failure of governance leadership.

Senators previously threatened to impeach Buhari due to his inability to combat insecurity in the country.

The Senate minority caucus has given Buhari a six-week deadline to address the country’s insecurity.

In response, Ohanaeze stated that if Osinbajo is exempted from the impeachment process, Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress, APC presidential candidate, will benefit.

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

“The exemption of the Vice President from impeachment threats demonstrates that APC Presidential candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu stands to benefit greatly.”

Ohanaeze suggested that if Osinbajo is elected president, he may create loopholes that benefit Tinubu in the 2023 election.

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

“Regardless of whether he runs against Tinubu in the APC primaries, he will use the power of incumbency in favor of Bola Tinubu’s victory, which contradicts Mr. President’s body language, who is likely reluctant to influence the 2023 elections for anyone other than whoever Nigerians want at the polls.”

“If Buhari is impeached, Osibanjo must go with him; both should be blamed for the country’s rising insecurity challenges.”

“Ndigbo supports 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 in their duties; if they continue to be onlookers and things go wrong, the National Assembly should not exonerate the Vice President for the notice of impeachment; Tinubu stands to benefit if only Buhari is impeached.”
