The group described President Buhari's action on the allegations of marginalization against the VP as hypocritical silence.
Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has urged the perceived cabal around President Muhammadu Buhari to cease their alleged acts of maltreatment against Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
The group alleged that measures were being taken against Osinbajo by some persons at the corridors of power with a view to suppressing Christians in the country.
A statement issued in Awka by MASSOB’s leader, Uchenna Madu, on Sunday described President Buhari’s silence on the allegations of marginalization against the VP as “hypocritical silence”.
The statement reads in part, “The unconstitutional stripping of Prof. Yemi Osinbajo’s official attributes attached to the office of the Vice President of the Federation is continuous humiliation of Christians in high positions of current administration of President Mohammed Buhari.
“MASSOB recalls that on Monday, September 16, 2019, Prof Yemi Osibanjo was removed unceremoniously as Head of the Statutory National Economic Council. On Tuesday, September 17, agencies and ministerial departments under his watch were redirected to report directly to Mr President.
“Same day, virtually all his aides attached to the office of the Vice President were given marching orders to leave Aso Rock. MASSOB views all these subjective frustration as a payback time to Prof. Yemi Osinbajo by unrepentant and unforgiving cabals that have vowed to fulfil the commandments of their forefathers.”
