A former presidential aspirant in the country, Princess Hadiza Ibrahim has alleged that there may be plans within the cabal in Aso Rock to kick out the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo ahead of the 2019 Presidential elections.
The former presidential aspirant revealed this while speaking during an interview with Daily Sun.
Princess Hadiza Ibrahim during the chat revealed that some cabal within the Aso Rock are bent on doing just about anything and everything possible to see to it that the Vice President is ousted from office.
Speaking with Daily Sun, she said: “In fairness, I also believe in Osinbajo. For the little time that Buhari was away on medical vacation recently, Osinbajo tried his best for this country. The value of naira appreciated. I am sure with time again, the value of naira will be on a higher side and dollar will be on a lower side.”
She added that Nigerians should remember that the mandate they gave Buhari during the 2015 general elections noting that it was not only for Buhari but a joint mandate for him and the vice president, Yemi Osinbajo.
She added: “Vividly, by the analysis probably done by me, if Buhari and somebody else and not Osinbajo had contested the presidential election in 2015, Buhari might not have come to power. I believe Osinbajo is a God sent man. He is a pastor and I see him as a prophet too because is so simple.
“I am sure God wants to use Osinbajo to rectify this country. So, I believe in Buhari/Osinbajo joint mandate. I want to give Osinbajo this advice that under no circumstance because of our vote and the trust we put in the his joint ticket with Buhari, he should not resign. The votes that brought them to power were for Buhari and Osinbajo. He should not disappoint us.
“I cast my vote because it is Buhari/Osinbajo. The vote is a debt on them. So, they should have the fear of God. So, Osinbajo should not resign, no matter what. The cabal should have the fear of God.”
She continued: “Osinbajo should not be afraid of any threat from anywhere. Nobody is above God. Since he is a man of God, he should stand by God. He should not be forced to resign and he should not resign on his own. He should continue to hold the mandate for President Buhari. When the Buhari gets well, he should handover to him. But in the absence of Buhari, he should not be forced to resign.”
The former aspirant while reacting to a question posed on the possibility of the said cabal using the National Assembly as a tool in carrying out its plan of impeaching the vice president, Hadiza said: “Why would the National Assembly impeach Osinbajo? For what offence? I Hadiza Ibrahim will not agree to that. I am crying out now. The change we asked for is reality. It is change for progress, and a change to move the country forward. It is not a change for different things.”
She added: “I believe in Buhari and Osinbajo joint mandate. I am crying now because I don’t understand where things are going to in Nigeria now. The cabal may ask him to resign, let me use this medium to tell him, he should not.
“Osinbajo has a mandate because we voted for Buhari and him. The mandate will last till May 29, 2019. So, he should not be coerced to resign so that he would not betray the confidence we have in him.”
