A Yoruba socio-political group Afenifere has urged the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, to resign over reports that his office has been undermined in recent time.
Afenifere said the VP should do like the former Chief of Staff to ex- Military Head of state,Ibrahim Babangide, Commodore Ebitu Ukiwe who stepped down after certain decisions were taken without his knowledge.
The National publicity secretary of Afenifere, Yinka Odumakin gave the call in reaction to the call that some aides of Osinbajo were sacked by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Speaking with Vanguard Thursday, Odumakin said stepping down was the most honourable thing for Osinbajo to do at this point in time.
He said: “I can’t fathom what Osinbajo is still doing in that place. He is a Yoruba man and our people say Iku da jesin (Death is more honourable than certain indignities). Except if he has become a hostage of a sort.
“This is the time to remember Ebitu Ukiwe, who resigned as IBB’s Chief of General Staff because some decisions were taken about Nigeria without his knowledge. That was under military rule based on fiat.”
