APC has denied naming former Attorney General of Lagos State, Prof. Yemi Osibajo as the Vice Presidential candidate of the party. The social media had been awash with reports that Prof. Osibajo is the running mate to General Buhari.
National Publicity Secretary of APC, Lai Mohammed told news men over the phone that the party is still deliberating on available option. He said APC will be detailed and thorough in its considerations.
Meanwhile in another development, Information gathered on the dirty past of the Redeemed Christian Church of God’s pastor, Prof. Osibajo is not favourably palatable.
According to sources, Prof Osibajo had served as the lead legal counsel to former Vice President Atiku Abubakar in his petition against the election of President Jonathan’s former boss, late President Umar Yar’Adua. Available information allegedly indicates that Prof. Osibajo betrayed the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar who his client at that time.
Dependable sources revealed that, Prof Osibajo allegedly connived with Wole Olanipekun who was the lead legal counsel to the then President Yar’Adua – to subvert the legal process and to derail Atiku Abubakar’s chances of possible victory at the Supreme Court. Interestingly, Osibajo was seconded as Yar’Adua’s Chief Legal Consultant on the advice of Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Prof Osibajo is reported to be Tinubu’s anointed candidate for the vice presidential slot but it has been ratified according to the statement by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
In a related development, the Governor Rotimi Amaechi’s camp appears unhappy with the way the pendulum of APC’s choice of VP is swinging particularly considering his political weight, frantic effort to face and discredit the Jonathan’s administration and above all his financial investment so far, all these are what we gathered some school of thoughts are looking at for Amaechi's candidacy as the VP.
It remains unsure if the grumblings within the party will result to the possible decampment of involved personalities.
