By AbuSatar Hamed

ABUJA: The Vice President of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has declared his readiness to waive his constitutional immunity to “enable the most robust adjudication” of several baseless allegations, insinuation and falsehoods against his person and office.

According to a release signed and made available to StarTrend Int’l magazine & www.star trendinternational.com by Laolu Akande, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media & Publicity, Office of the Vice President, Prof. Osinbajo made this declaration in a tweet he personally authored this afternoon.

VP Osinbajo on Wednesday September 25, 2019 presided over the weekly Federal Executive Council meeting at the Presidential Villa as President is abroad attending United Nations General Assembly debate in New York.

Below is the full text of his tweet:

“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 posited.
