N90-Billion Controversy: Vice President Osinbajo Vs Former APC Secretary Timi Frank

Nigeria's embattled Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, vows he will waive his constitutional immunity to clear his name over the N90 billion he allegedly received from the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) for the funding of the 2019 elections.



The vice president, through his verified twitter handle, @ProfOsinbajo, said, “In the past few days, a spate of reckless and malicious falsehoods have been peddled in the media against me by a
group of malicious individuals.


“The defamatory and misleading assertions invented by this clique had mostly been making the social media rounds anonymously.

“I have today instructed the commencement of legal action against two individuals, one Timi Frank and another Katch Ononuju, who have put their names to these odious falsehoods.

“I will waive my constitutional immunity to enable the most robust adjudication of these claims of libel and malicious falsehood."



A former deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Timi Frank, had on Monday claimed the travails of Osinbajo were due to an alleged N90-billion scandal, and that recent developments involving him had nothing to do with 2023 politics.

Frank urged Osinbajo to sue him instead of threatening media houses over his latest revelation, saying he was waiting to receive a court summons.



He also asked Osinbajo to resign as the vice president to give room for a thorough investigation and unbiased prosecution in court, saying,

“This is important so as not to influence the judiciary as well as use public funds to pursue the case as a sitting vice president,” Frank stated.(Saharareporters)
