Timi Frank, a former deputy national publicity chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has stated that vice president Yemi Osinbajo is the chairman of Yahoo Yahoo in Nigeria.
This he said in reaction to the travails bothering Osinbajo, part of which has seen agencies under his control taken from him by President Buhari.
According to Timi Frank, the travails have nothing to do with a presidential ambition in 2023 but alleged mismanagement of N90billion which was released by the Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS.
Frank said: “The presidency discovered how Osinbajo allegedly mismanaged N90billion from the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS).
“When confronted by the presidency, he confirmed to General Buhari that he indeed allegedly took N90billion from FIRS but it was used for the 2019 presidential election campaign in strategic states of the South-west.
“Gen Buhari asked for a breakdown of how the money was spent and he said he gave N11 billion to Lagos state APC leader but when the said national leader and one former APC chairman were invited for an explanation, it was confirmed that Osinbajo gave only N5billion and not N11billion to Lagos state.
“The cabal is asking to know how come they beat PDP in the South-west with less than 60,000 votes if the money was actually spent in the strategic states of the South-west as allegedly claimed.”
Timi Frank added that the vice president must resign if the information is true, and should be given the same treatment former NSA, Sambo Dasuki is getting.
He added: “This goes to confirm the NEMA case against Osinbajo concerning the N5billion that he was alleged to have siphoned.
“The ball is in Gen Buhari’s court to show Nigerians that he supports corruption from his cabinet members and do nothing or he is indeed truly fighting corruption and therefore force him to resign.
“No wonder the fight against corruption under this administration is not yielding positive results as expected.”
“How do we expect the ‘yahoo boys’ to change when the VP is their chairman? Nigerians must not feel sorry for Osibanjo as the time to pay for his yahoo yahoo activities has come.
He added: “If Osinbajo is investigated, Nigerians will be shocked to find more revelation about his activities.
“If he fails to resign, the National Assembly must begin the process of impeachment against him as a matter of urgency to prove to Nigerians that 9th Assembly is not a rubber stamp of the executive.
“Finally, I call on Osinbajo to immediately apologise to God for his ‘yahoo yahoo’ behaviour and repent otherwise he will be disgraced out of office.”
