Follow Goodluck Jonathan’s footsteps when you lied against him

It is no longer news that Mr. Jackson Ude fingered vice president Yemi Osibanjo as one of those that benefited from Magu’s loot.

But former presidential aide to Jonathan, Reno Omokri has warned Vice President Prof Yemi Osinbajo against using the police to intimidate the blogger who accused him of receiving N4 billion from Ibrahim Magu, the suspended Chairman of EFCC.

Omokri is of the opinion that the Vice President should instead clear his name or sue the blogger.

He recalled that Osinbajo once accused Goodluck Jonathan in like manner but the ex-President did not use the police against him or threatened.

Osinbajo had earlier on Thursday asked the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, to investigate allegations that he received N4 billion from Magu.

This was contained in a petition addressed to Adamu through Osinbajo’s lawyer, Taiwo Osipitan and dated July 8, 2020.

The Vice President asked IGP Adamu to initiate criminal proceedings against Ude if the allegations are proven to be untrue after investigation.

Reacting to Osinbajo’s action, Omokri tweeted, “It is an abuse of office for the so-called pastor @ProfOsinbajo to ask the IGP of @PoliceNG to investigate @JacksonPBN.

“If VP Osinbajo is sure Magu didn’t pay him ₦4 billion, as alleged, then he should sue him for slander, rather than use the police to intimidate him.

“When @ProfOsinbajo lied against ex-President @GEJonathan, Jonathan did not ask the @PoliceNG IGP to intimidate Osinbajo.

“He just revealed the facts, which proved Osinbajo is a LIAR. Therefore, Osinbajo should come clean with the facts of the Magu ₦4 billion allegation.”

The Magu case is certainly opening so many cans that were closed for long time now.
