Nigerians Recall Osinbajo's Sack Of DSS DG, Say Comparison To Pence Ridiculous by TheRareGem1(f): 9:47pm On Jan 07
Some Nigerians have mocked their fellow citizens for comparing Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to Vice President Mike Pence of the US over his role to certify the election of President-elect Joe Biden.

Many Nigerians, most of whom are ignorant of the fact that Mr. Pence does not have the constitutional powers to stop the certification tried to compare his action to that of Prof. Osinbajo.

Educating them on the election process, many Nigerians explained that Prof Osinbajo does not need to act like Pence because President Muhammadu Buhari has never said he will reject an election or even seek another term in office, therefore making the comparison baseless.

They also used the opportunity to educate their counterparts that Prof. Osinbajo has been a model number two citizen citing actions which include the sack of former DSS DG, Lawal Daura for simply blocking the gate of the National Assembly in 2017.

Others cited how he directed the inauguration of the Judicial Panel of Inquiry following the #EndSARS protest and how he has repeatedly called for erring policemen and security agents to be prosecuted.
Commenting on the matter, a Twitter user, O. P. Nuels wrote, “We always criticize our own. Mike Pence was mute for four years, last minute, he plays a ceremonial role and he becomes a hero. When VP Osinbajo was Acting President, he confirmed CJ Onnoghen, something President Muhammadu Buhari had kept in the cooler for months and he fired Lawal Daura as DG DSS.”

Mayowa Olaniyan also sought to educate his fellow citizens. “Even in the midst of this mess Mike Pence never stood up to his boss but stood to uphold the constitution. Just like Pence, Osinbajo stands for the Nigerian constitution and not against his boss. The sacking of Lawal Daura is a testament to this fact.”

Another user, Ekitiketekan listed some achievements of Prof Osinbajo even as Attorney General of Lagos. “Osinbajo's reformed the civil justice system in the state of Lagos. “ He reduced the backlog of cases in the High Court and extended the accessibility of the legal system to the wider population.

“He reduced the average delays and duration of commercial cases before the civil courts. In 2000, as part of the Access to Justice Programme, five free Citizen Mediation Centres were opened in Lagos “as an alternative dispute resolution mechanism”.

Bola Danusi also laughed off the comparison saying there is no basis for it. “Enough of all this uneven comparison between Pence and Osinbajo. VP Osinbajo has always been unequivocally supporting the true cause. Have we quickly forgotten when he boldly suggested the need for a national debate to reduce the expensive cost of governance?

Our people are gullible.

They are ignorant of the loyalty Pence has for Trump 4 years ago. He never stood against him, not even for once.
Now, Americans have spoken and not pence or any republican lawmaker can prevent or overturn people's votes. Not possible.

Pence didn't stop or Stepdown when his boss sabotage Obama care or refused to sign relieve bill....My country people will not see this ooo. Very funny people

Osinbajo remains the main deal. A shining light in Buahri administration.

Now let's see if Pence will invoke the 25th ammendment...one that will impeach his boss....since you people are shouting Pence up and down.

Osinbajo is leader who works according to the Constitution of our land. Comparing him with Mike Pence is a big error. He carries out his duties just as laid down by the Constitution.

He has been shaken and tested but he didn't fret neither did he get distracted.

He is loyal, humble, easy going and even those who are working with him are so humble and well selected.


It is just a pity that Osinbanjo is an assistant to a clueless Captain.


Osinbanjo is the next President of Nigeria, take it or argue with your ancestors

Like Osibanjo like Atiku. They called Atiku all type of Name but try to make Osibanjo a Saint Yoruba and hypocrisy is like 5 & 6. If Mike Pence is a good man nothing will make Trump to be so radical, a president never work alone if you have head an organisation or institutions you will know that most of the work designated to president are done by Vice, that president are just Ceremonial. During Obasanjo regime all the bad policy people especially Yoruba criticise Atiku but today they do everything humanly possible to exenorate Osibanjo in every bad policy this Administration took. Put Osibanjo as next president the same policy of Buhari will still go on nothing will change, No Vice president any where in the world who succeed his master has ever change the Policy, we also quick to forget that is a loyal member of Tinubu boys who uses pastor as a covering up, the same cabal will still control him .

Our VP was once an acting President so he should have significant impact, going by that logic all the listed "achievements" are not mind blowing.

But the real question is "If it came down to him just like Pence, to exercise a significant power which could effect the 2019 election results, which he and Mr Lifeless massively rigged, against themselves, will he do it??"


your guess is as good as mine!

This is about test of Character, about putting the constitution and the people first, about dignity and respect, not playing to the gallery. And I tell you guys, if Osinbanjo had any of the above attributes, he should have resigned long ago

When it comes to talking, they are quick to compare

When it comes to laying achievements bare, these same people defending him will say "he (Osibanjo) has no power to do such"

Can any of these people show any concrete achievements other than suggestions

Lolz we have a working democracy which we are even improving on. Buhari is more democratic than Trump because he stood for elections three times and lost. Trump can't even accept one defeat. Yes I know there are flaws, Buhari endured those flaws on three occasions. Then he won when he took advantage those flaws in 2015. Trump also took advantage of the flaws in their system to win four years ago and now the table has turned and he wants to burn down the building. Mike Pence has political ambitions and he used the Trump/Pence ticket to climb the ladder so he was careful not to burn that ladder. The circumstances surrounding the American system is not the same with ours. So no need to compare Pence with Osibanjo who in my opinion has been the reason Buhari's government has small acceptability.

Many Nigerians are educated at Ignorance.

They can compare not conclude.

If Capitol could be invaded without any police shot.
If peaceful protesters could be shot by order from above soldiers how much more if Nigerians invade the National Assembly or Aso Rock.


To make matters worse the courage to change is not even in us, the Westerners do.
