The Myths Of Osinbajo Aspirations by ElderlyPerson(m): 3:34pm On Apr 19
It is no more a gainsay that the Presidential election race has witnessed an intense camaraderie in the last couple of weeks.

Popular news had it initially at the early part of the year of Bola Ahmed Tinubu an elder stateman of APC declaration of aspiration to fulfill his life-long ambition of becoming the president of the FRN. In a bid to as well make known of their intents to fit in for the herculean task. The VP, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, the Minister of Rail and Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, and most recently the minister of Labour in person of Prof Chris Ngige has as well declared their interest in the climax seat of power.

However, as expected, some loyalists of the most renowned candidate under the platform of APC had taken to social medias to libel, slander and blackmail the Vice President accusing him of betrayal and all sort of immoral prejudices.

In light of this, I will like to refute some of the myths as fondly constituted by these set of bigots:


I need to first reiterate that, the idea of Osinbajo being conceived and rumoured as a betrayer is completely nothing but an emotional blackmail.

Tinubu, for years had been known for staunch Godfatherism. With numerous testaments to this. Among which are his breach of Agreement with ex Governor of Osun and current Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, such that the hierarchy of gubernatorial seat after Aregbesola in Osun State was supposedly to be Alh Moshood Adeoti. But due to Tinubu's domineering attitude to the trend of things, he preferred Oyetola, a relation, to the seat thereby pocketing the life-long ambition of people who had crossed their Ts and dotted their Is for the post.

Not only, Gov Akeredolu was said to have fallen apart with this political juggernaut during his aspiration towards becoming the next governor of Ondo State. A move, owing to the fact Tinubu was in support of a candidate he felt would be a simp to his authority.

Lagos State, former governor, Ambode also was one of the pawn in the chess of Tinubu's radical show of politics amongst many others.

What do we then say to these people whom Tinubu had outsmarted them, due to their non-adherence to his bidding, or his conception. They might not do his bidding.

To say Osinbajo is a betrayer, begs the question does Tinubu uphold his moral standards in any wise ?


As much as we cannot shy away from the fact, the current administration had failed all and sundry who entrusted them with the mandate. It is not a yardstick to label the VP an outright failure for the said economy for the following reasons:

1. Economy is controlled by quite a number of factors. Most of which the VP have little or no say. For an instance, closure of borders wrecked the Economy status of the country greatly, an implementation the VP have little or no control over.

2. Not only, some economical stringent policies such as high taxation, banning of cryptocurrencies, COVID-19. Among many other factors largely play a crucial role in deciding the Economic progression or retrogression.

As a matter of fact, the ban on Cryptocurrency was promptly condemned by the VP as a technocrat who understands the implication of such move on the economy status of the country

Another myth that has been going round the media recently is that of controversial journalist Farouq Kperogi's allegation of the VP's agenda to rccgify Nigeria. Based on his said, underground research and inquiries.

As much as I strongly condemn bigotry at any instance and from any perspective. It's safe to say the publication of the said journalist is quite controversial, and of ulterior motives. You will recall, such release was debunked earnestly by the VP's office with a video release of Muslim from various part of the country and their congenial post in the cabinet.

My bone of contention to the said RCCG members is that; was the said journalist able to give a genuine backup to his claim of VP's cabinet Christian members being RCCG members? If he was? To what extent or degree. All these are questions that needs to be answered beyond gainsays and hearsays. Lest we fall for the gimmicks of people of the bourdillion villa.

In conclusion, Facts they say speaks for itself. The numerous achievements of the VP in his acting days as the President speaks for how much of a man of Timber and Calibre he is.
