FIRS Fund: Vanguard Retracts Story, Apologizes To Osinbajo by BleedingPen: 8:03pm On Sep 25, 2019
Management of Vanguard Newspapers have tendered apology to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo over the controversial N90bn FIRS
campaign funds ran against him courtesy Timi Frank.

This comes barely 24 hours after the Vice President threatened a libel suit against the newspaper if it failed to retract the story and apologize within 24 hours.

A quick check on their website showed that the story has since been pulled down while also publishing a full-page applogy.

Read full statement as obtained by Igbere TV below...

RETRACTION / APOLOGY to VP Yemi Osinbajo

On our website publication of Monday, September 23, 2019 we published a story titled "N90bn FIRS Election Fund: Osinbajo's problem, not 2023 politics." We have since discovered that the story lacks factual substance and we hereby retract it in its entirety

We tender our profound apology to Professor Yemi Osinbajo SAN, the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on whom the story touches directly and the All Progressives Congress, A.P.C. for any inconvenience or embarrassment the publication has occasioned them.

We hold Professor Osinbajo, S.A.N. in the highest esteem.

Editor,

Vanguard Newspapers

It doesn't really matter if they retract the story or not, the people pushing the story knows the dent they have inflicted on the image of the man and on his self worth.

Same methods were used against Goodluck Jonathan and we all saw how it affected him, no, he wasn't convicted, he was even begged to forgive but by then it has become too late.

Osinbajo could still be fighting off accusers that he will be too busy to notice that the APC presidential congress for 2023 was done a week ago while he was standing in court defending himself grin

Just like that.
They already saved the 'sorry' for the 'act'.
Now that you are sure it's fake and wrong, let's meet in court.

No more press freedom in Nigeria.

We are even saying Buhari is a dictator but clearly Osibanjo will be a brutal dictator than buhari.


What is the essence of law that he studied....No more press freedom.


Osibanjo is more deadly and dangerous than buhari...


We complain of Sars intimidating Nigeria, what can we call the action of same man who ordered sars to be reformed?


Osibanjo doesn't practice what he preaches?


A shame to the church

Vanguard is a very shameless media platform. They represent everything bad about journalism in Nigeria. The level of bigotry, falsehood, lies, propaganda etc that emanates from that platform is alarming. If not for the threat of legal action, they wouldn’t have retracted the story. Sadly, Nigeria press council that is supposed to regulate media platforms is a toothless goat. Journalisms has gone to the dogs in Nigeria.

Timi Frank is now on his own. He will have to face the music alone.

Coward chickens! cheesy
Vanguard won't go scot-free.

The next time they hear the name Timi Frank (a loser being used by the losing party) they will run 100 meters senior boys!

Believe anything from Timi at your own peril.
He will send you to jail.
He is one of the fools spreading rumors to some idiots.

There's no smoke without fire.
Osinbajo can't fully be trusted.

Nonentity, they have exposed your ignorance, you have suddenly come to hide on freedom of speech.

And does freedom of speech include defaming other people characters? You should be ashamed of yourself. If atall you have any intergrity. Typical lazy youth
