A cabal of Northern power brokers within the Presidency are reported to be finalizing plans to kick out Vice President Yemi Osinbajo from the Villa, and annoin this successor.
This report which was released by reputable newspaper, Tribune, states that the cleric VP may face a corruption allegation which will see him forced out of office.
Tribune reports that the popular pastor may likely be replaced by another pastor from another popular church in the country in order to placate southerners and Christians.
Although other names are reportedly being bandied as his possible replacement, the said pastor appears to fulfill all the requirements, being also a Christian, a popular pastor and equally from the south-western part of the country like the vice president.
It was further learnt that those who want to see the back of Osinbajo are considering two major exit strategies: either his forceful resignation or impeachment through the National Assembly.
A source around the vice president said his in-house traducers are already seeing him to be toast with the conviction that it may not be too difficult forcing him to resign when brought under pressure.
Osinbajo’s lack of meaningful political structure outside of Senator Bola Tinubu’s is likely emboldening those seeking to rid the presidency of him.
The vice president’s major sin for which he has reportedly not been forgiven, according to an insider source, is beyond the actions taken when the president was hospitalised in the United Kingdom.
