90billion Allegation: Osinbajo Told To Resign First


A constitutional lawyer, Mr Realwan Okpanachi, in Abuja,has said Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, cannot waive his immunity.

The legal practitioner spoke with newsmen in Abuja, stating that Osinbajo could only waive his immunity effectively, “if he sincerely desires to do so is to resign from his position as vice president.”

“He cannot remain in office and waive his immunity as the immunity is attached to that office and not his person,” the lawyer said.

The lawyer said that Section 308 of the Constitution, which raises arguments in some quarters that the vice president could not institute any case in his name no longer represent the position of the law.
