Reps Begins Impeachment Against Vice President, House Member Alleges
The House of Representatives is collecting signatures to impeach the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
This was disclosed by a Member of the Federal House of Representatives , Mr. Johnson Agbonayinma, representing Egor/Ikpoba-Okha Federal Constituency, Edo State. He made the allegation while addressing journalists in Abuja on Tuesday.
The lawmaker said, “Some political gladiators and media houses” were sponsoring fake news against Osinbajo.
“The reason is because of the NEMA investigation,” he said.
Recall that the Vice President’s name was mentioned in the investigation into how money meant for the National Emergency Management Agency,NEMA, was allegedly diverted instead of using it for the purpose it was meant budgeted. Although, the investigation has specifically indicted Osinbajo but no court has convicted him.
Agbonayinma, however, failed to name those behind the campaign against the Vice-President, saying they include disgruntled members of the All Progressives Congress. But, since the end of the controversial primaries of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, some of the memberrs of the the party in the National Assembly have been unhappy with the Part leaders including those holding sensitive public offices.
The House had probed the activities of the National Emergency Management Agency in the North-East, during which it indicted Osinbajo and the Director-General of the agency.
