Vice President Yemi Osibanjo (SAN) has been enjoined to drop his presidential ambition and then support that of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

A youth leader in the Niger Delta, John Dekawei, gave the advise when he spoke with newsmen in Warri, Delta State.

Dekawei said Prof. Osibanjo should be loyal to Tinubu, his political leader and former two-term Governor of Lagos State.

He said: “Prof. Yemi Osinbajo should not forget the role Tinubu played in ensuring that he becomes the Vice President of Nigeria.

They have all gone into a meeting with the president.

The meeting was believed to be in connection with ambition of Tinubu in the coming elections.

Our correspondent reports that the duo had not been seen together since 2015 when he escorted the then APC candidate,  President Muhammadu Buhari, to Obasanjo’s residence.

He was also at the 78th birthday of the former President held at Abeokuta in March, 2015.

The two of them have since kept their distances as Obasanjo withdrew his support for Buhari and the APC, which he supported to power by tearing his card as a member of the Peoples Democratic Party.

The activist said Obi cannot help Nigeria from corrupt political leaders, declaring supporters of the former Anambra Governor as “PDP Lite.”

He wrote: “The person they say wants to save Nigeria from corrupt PDP and APC is always running to PDP folks and he doesn’t know they are just using him to catch cruise. That’s why I said the Obidents are PDP Lite. Good thing is February is almost here.”
