Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused Vice President Yemi Osinbajo of being economical with the truth when he stated that President Muhammadu Buhari was not aware of the plans by the executive arm to arraign the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen.

This is even as the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) said that it has been vindicated on its stands that President Buhari is physically unfit to continue in office.

 Replying Osibanjo’s comment that President Buhari is not aware of Onnoghe’s arraignment, PDP, in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan said that Osinbajo should know that Nigerians are aware that there is no way such high-level decision, like the arraignment of the Chief Justice of Nigeria in a court, would be taken without the awareness, input and clearance of Mr. President.

 Rejecting Osinbajo’s claims that President Buhari only got to know about the plans on Saturday and the federal government was saddened by the development, the PDP challenged the Vice President to explain why Mr. President did not stop the arraignment on Monday or said anything on the matter since then.

 “However, if the avowal by Vice President Osinbajo’s was true, then it goes to confirm the assertion that President Buhari is not in charge of governance but has outsourced the responsibilities of his office to unelected individuals due to his incompetence. 

“Vice President Osinbajo’s assertion has also confirmed the claims by our First Lady, Aisha Buhari that a cabal has taken over the control of the Presidency, for which she forcefully called on Nigerians to take back their country.

 “The PDP notes that the Buhari Presidency is only trying to sway public opinion on the matter following the outrage by Nigerians against the arraignment of the CJN,” it said.

 PDP, however, urged all lovers of democracy and rule of law to continue to be on their guard in the defence of “our nation against anti-democratic tendencies of the Buhari administration, particularly the clamp down on democratic institutions in our country.”
