PDP dares Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to make good his threats to set aside his constitutional immunity by immediately resigning his office to face the corruption allegations, in which he was named, in court.

The party says since VP Osinbajo has announced his readiness to renounce his constitutional immunity in the face of corruption allegations, he should do the needful by resigning and vacating the office as there is no provision for waiver of immunity in our constitution.

The PDP holds that immunity under section 308 of the 1999 constitution (as amended) is conferred on an official by virtue of his/her election into an office within the duration and cannot be waived by any means other than resignation.

Vice President Osinbajo should know that it is settled that section 308 can only be set aside by vacating the office. It is not a jacket to be put on or dropped at will.

The PDP, therefore, puts the National Assembly on notice to consider the pronouncement by the Vice President as an official communication to the legislature indicating his intention to vacate office.

  • After failing woefully at the polls, PDP is wishing to get Buhari/Osinbajo out of office by the back-door. After looting the country for 16 years, PDP is desperate to be in government again to do what they are known for – stealing. But the elections have taken place and PDP IS THE LOSER. Buhari/Osinbajo are in the saddle till 2023 to fulfill the mandate freely given them by the people of Nigeria and no force can remove them.
