Fani-Kayode ‘talking nonsense’, says Osinbajo

Fani-Kayode ‘talking nonsense’, says Osinbajo

Yemi Osinbajo, the running mate to Muhammadu Buhari, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has denied swearing any oath to step down for Bola Tinubu, his benefactor and national leader of APC.

Speaking on Saturday during a programme tagged Conversations for change, Osinbajo said Femi Fani-Kayode, the director of media and publicity of the PDP presidential campaign, who made the allegation, was only saying “nonsense”.

Fani-kayode had alleged that Osinbajo had a secret pact with Tinubu to hand over power to him if APC wins the forthcoming presidential election.

“Tinubu, according to our information, has compelled Osinbajo to swear to an oath that after six months in office, he would resign as the vice president, in the unlikely event that their party wins,” he had said.

But Osinbajo described the allegation as the handiwork of a mischief maker.

“I never entered any negotiation with any person to hand over six months after, if APC is elected,” he said.

“Those behind the allegation have exhausted their thinking faculties.”

Osinbajo further accused the federal government of being incapable to pilot the affairs of the country in the right direction.

“The major problem this country has is corruption,” he said.

“A current minister spent $10 billion to maintain a private jet and questions are not being asked. Every single day, 400,000 barrel of oil is stolen and the government is not asking questions.

“Our naira is on a free fall because our foreign reserves is steadily falling. Every aspect of our lives is affected by corruption. I’m not surprised that they cannot find money for social welfare programmes.

“Everyone knows the issues but the discipline to apply solutions has been the problem. The change we seek is absolutely very important and that change must come.”

He clamoured for state policing as a practical solution to the problem of insecurity, accusing the current administration of politicising insecurity.

“There must be the local police. It is the only logical way to police. You cannot police without understanding the local language of the people. We need the state police,” he said

“Policing is an important part of security. It is completely impossible to run an efficient policing system from the centre.

“The federal government mishandled and politicised Boko Haram insurgency. When the bomb goes off, it doesn’t care what religion you practice. It murders.”

    Truly the PDP propaganda machine has run out of steam. Prof, you are far far ahead of the Fayoses and FaniKayodes and need not engage them at their gutter levels.

    FFK is only trying to justify the soft landing he got from the government as per the corruption charges against him. He does not have any meaningful source of living and hes broke from what he stole from being a minister. I dont think anyone takes him serious.
