Embattled Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has reacted to the on-going alleged defamation of his name. In a story earlier reported by Naija News, he stated that he is ready to waive his constitutional immunity to “enable the most robust adjudication” of several baseless allegations, insinuation, and falsehoods against his person and office.
Meanwhile, some Nigerians have taken to Twitter to react to the development.

There’s been a barrage of libelous claims against VP Osinbajo mostly on WhatsApp & elsewhere on Social Media by mostly faceless people. Assuredly, all such claims are false. Where we’re able to identify those peddling such evil lies, there ‘ll be a legal & proper reckoning. Watch

Does anyone still have doubts about the campaign cum onslaught against Osinbajo within his party?
