Former Director of Strategy and Communications, Jackson Ude has urged Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to resign from his office before suing him to court.
Jackson Ude had earlier accused Professor Yemi Osinbajo of collecting N4 billion bribe from Ibrahim Magu, the suspended acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
Reacting to the allegation, Osinbajo on Thursday asked the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, to investigate the alleged bribe leveled against him. Osinbajo also asked IGP Adamu to initiate criminal proceedings against Jackson Ude if the allegations are proven to be untrue after investigation.
Jackson Ude, reacting to Osinbajo’s petition urged the politician to stop hiding behind his political seat and face him head on in court after resigning.
He said that since the Vice President is denying the allegation, the Presidential Panel investigating Magu and the police, should be compelled to release the transcripts of Magu’s confessions.
Jackson Ude tweeted: “Since Osinbajo, the Star Boy, is denying, let’s have lawyers compel the Presidential Panel investigating Magu and the Police, to release the verbatim transcripts of Magu’s confessions. This is not about waving immunity.
“I am not afraid of Osinbajo and his minions. If he indeed wants to go to court, he needs to resign first, and sue me. He cannot be VP and be using state resources to intimidate the Judiciary. He cannot wave an immunity that he didn’t place. Osinabjo should resign first!
“Osinbajo should have used the U.S Police, FBI or even the CIA to charge me for criminal defamation. Using the Nigerian Police is a waste of poor Nigerian taxpayers money. Except his aim is to arrest me in Nigeria, lock me up forever. Anyway, perhaps Na my ghost dem go arrest.”
