Youth Group Defends Osibanjo




The Arewa Youth Group has described as false allegations leveled against Vice President, Yemi Osibanjo.

According to the group, the recent  travail of the Vice President is the handiwork of political desperadoes who should not be taken serious.

According to a statement issued in Kaduna, the group said, “We, as members of Arewa Youth Assembly have been watching very closely the vituperations, falsehood and vendetta directed at the person and office of the vice president.

“We have read series of paid advertorials where professional mudslingers at the urging of their sponsors took shots at the hardworking and God-fearing professor of law of evidence and law of proof.”

The statement signed by the Speaker of the Assembly, Mohammed Salihu Danlami said, “We wish to use this medium to tell those political buccaneers who are sponsoring these hate-filled and lay laden advertorials to put an end to the despicable and damnable type of life style.

“Although, as a forum, we knew most of them are serial liars who are suffering from a rare character disorder known as dishonest integrity.

“Even when the Vice President’s achievements are indisputable, and have been reputed for unquestioned integrity, a man of truth, probity and honesty. He is a stabilizing force in Nigeria polity, a visionary performer who brokered peace with Niger Delta militants.

“The audacity of lies against the Vice President cannot stand; the so called coup plotters and ethno-religious sentiment must be resisted, we must begin to build a Nigeria where tribe and religion are simply not a factor.

“The Vice President is a man with depth and substance”.

“His cerebral contribution to academic excellence is unrivalled in the history of legal scholarship in Nigeria. Prof Yemi’s erudition, dedication and hard work earned him many accolade in legal education in Nigeria, including being conferred within the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN).

“While our president was on sick bed the acting President was busy strengthening the foundation of peace and stability across the country. We drank from your fountain of sempiternal knowledge and benefited from your unstinting ethical, academic and political mentorship.

The group said, “Your towering intellectual profile did not diminish your humility and accessibility to all those who summoned courage to break through the facade of a hard man.

“Prof. Yemi is no stranger to politics, administration and academic and almost every sphere of dealings in this country. His antecedents and contributions to the smooth socio-economic, political and economic running of Nigeria have stood the test of time and pressure, never wavering or bulking.

“The jaundiced political hysteria of all those behind these self destruction have succeeded in exposing their ignorance to the dynamic of modern leadership anchored on the plank of peace and having a clear-cut demarcation of leadership and governance.

“Despite their perceived or chest rated campaign to smear the image of the Vice President, to us, he is a bridge builder, our indefatigable leader, his unprecedented achievement, honest, proactive leadership qualities, amiable disposition and goodwill will remain immortalised in the annals of Vice Presidentship in Nigeria.

“Prof Yemi is a leader that have a global inter-disciplinary perspective. He has strong communication skills and while he was acting president he was able to prioritise social justice and well-being over financial growth.

“We urge Nigerians to disregard the unprovoked and perfidious attack on the person of the Vice President, we urge the public to summarily disregard these unsavoury and fabricated reports in their entirety, up till now nobody has yet produced any evidence to prove that there was any crime Prof. Yemi committed.”
