Yemi Osibanjo returning as Nigeria’s Vice President is currently hanging in the air as impeccable Villa sources has told SecretReporters of insider plotting by the power players.
According to our Presidential sources, Osibanjo is viewed by many of the top Northern power brokers as having too much influence on President Muhammadu Buhari, and has even stopped them from accessing areas that brings funds to the pockets.
To perfect the plan of kicking out Osibanjo in 2019, they have sealed a deal with Adams Oshiomhole to change the All Progressive Congress (APC) rule which will negate the Vice President from running on the same ticket twice with the President. This deal is part of the condition for getting their support so far, which will see him emerge as the party’s Chairman on June 23rd during the National Convention, revealed the source.
To replace Osibanjo, they have penned down the current Imo State Governor, Mr. Rochas Okorocha, whom they viewed more as a Northerner, due to his past dealings with them.
The deal to kick out Osibanjo is one of the reasons that the poisoned apple of compensating South West with MKO Abiola was brought up as well as re-opening Bola Ige’s murder case, this paper learned.
“Additionally, Yoruba may get Mrs. Tinubu as Senate President if Saraki does not behave. If that initial Seven Wise white paper on Mrs. Tinubu becoming Senate President does not materialize again, then Yoruba will get SSG. Osinbajo must go because the cabal thinks he is a clog to the overall Buhari agenda”, our highly connected source squealed.
