The Coalition of Northern Nigerian Youth (CNNY) has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to halt any attempt that can lead to maltreatment of the personality and Office of the Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
Speaking to the Journalists in Kano on Tuesday, Mallam Yusuf Abdulmalik said, he believes that the news going around the media that the Presidency is moving to reduce the powers of the Vice-President and subsequently sideline him, is a rumour.
He said any attempt to do the above would label President Buhari and by extension the North as ungrateful people, creating a bad image for the region to the entire world.
He said, Osinbajo who has displayed maximum loyalty to the President both in his presence and absence, is the face of the Christian and strength of the Yorubas and the South in Buhari administration hence, he should never be abandoned at any time.
He further noted that, the smooth relationship between Buhari and Osinbajo in the last four years has given more life to the one Nigeria spirit and should never be allowed to be destroyed by some selfish individuals, who are hidding under the bed to stain the hard earned integrity of the President.
He described Osinbajo as an accomplished Professor of Law and a great servant of God, urging the President to put a stop to any attempt to strip him of his constitutional powers in favour of anyone within or outside the government.
