A report at the start of the week, stated that Nigerians should expect a flurry of attacks on the president but apparently since they'd been caught out on that, and as we say in Nigeria; money cannot waste it was expected that they would turn back to their regular click bait which is to attempt to drive a wedge between the apparently cordial relationship between the Vice president and his principal.

To pick out holes in the authority author's argument is as easy as giving a child a pinyata stick without the eyes being closed. Fortunately I happen to be a loyal supporter of the Arsenal football team and on that regard alone if have stopped reading for the comparisons between the Vice President and Ozil is in itself a great disrespect to the person of Professor Yemi Osinbajo.

The idea of Ozil being a brilliant footballer whose skill set are best accentuated in a team that's superior to it's competitors has long been established and as such playing in an Arsenal team struggling to qualify for the top 4 and failing, part of which can be attributed to the fact that fielding Ozil is tantamount to playing 10 against 11.
If we now factor in the debacle over the Covid-19 pay cut that he declined during the shut down, we can understand why the team's hierarchy were resolute in shutting him out of the the team plus the emergence of Emile Smith-Rowe has put paid to the out right lie as told at the very start of the article for nobody at Arsenal is talking or even thinking about Mr. Ozil.

From football to politics, only the uninformed or deliberately ignorant would join in the "where is Osinbajo?" discuss. A cursory check of his social media handles across twitter, Facebook, Instagram and the web would show how active the Vice President has been, with a pictograph depicting both his weekly and monthly activities making the rounds.

This effectively puts paid to the insinuation that he is not allow allowed to perform his constitutional duties. I agree with Pastor Bakare that were that to be the case, he should resign but just as the respectable Pastor was forced to come on Arise TV to clarify his statement after the press had gone to bed misquoting him just to sell papers "I'm not saying he's being maligned, but if he is, I expect him to come out and say so". He is verily within his rights to opine so and most logical persons would agree

What is completely unacceptable though is the outright lies the author subtly tried to insert in the midst of some truths. For a member of the fourth estate to insinuate that the Vice President went around markets sharing money to market women and petty traders, despite how many times this notion has been corrected only shows that agenda must agenda.

On the claims that Buhari critics are bludgeoning him for comments against former President Jonathan is nothing short of laughable. It would amount to disservice for the Vice President to have these information and not share it. We should also remember that these claims to themselves weren't new as they were already stated by none more knowledgeable than the erstwhile CBN governor Sanusi Lamido who lost his job for declaring that the sum of 20 Billion dollars was missing as well as Okonjo-Iwela former minister of finance who claimed that who ever was going to assume power in 2015 should anticipate for a recession due to the spendings of the Jonathan administration, to paraphrase both of them.

For persons with no truths, it would not be hard to understand yet subvert the fact that handing over when traveling is at the perogative of the President in as much as the trip does not exceed the constitutionally stipulated 21 days. So while the President hasn't handed over power since the sacking of Daura of DSS, he has not spent more than 21 days outside the country, so those who are looking for flames where there is no fire should wait a while longer for when the breach is committed.

All in all, the tremendous work that the Vice President has been involved in has garnered numerous accolades both from the world bank and the AfDB for the NSIP poo programmes as well as the improvements in our ease of doing business rankings in the last three years. The traditional rulers of the North have at numerous times extolled Prof. Osinbajo's proactiveness and loyalty. From the Sultan of Sokoto to the Emirs of Daura, Lagos and Kano to name a few.

His continuous interjections to smoothen relations during the establishment of Amotekun in the southwest with the Federal Executives to return peace to the region as well as the sides taken during the EndSARS struggle will continue to ring the rounds, long after the judicial committees that the NEC which he chairs every Thursday constituted have submitted their reports.

So the gauntlet has been thrown open, the challenge accepted. If the fourth estate won't spread truthful information, them they should be pepper prepared to be continually call called out.
