  • N90billion brouhaha: VP Yemi Osinbajo asked to resign

  • VP Yemi Osinbajo says that Mr Realwan Okpanachi, a constitutional
    legal counselor in Abuja, can not defer his immunity.

    On Monday in Abuja, the legitimate professional disclosed to NAN that the main successful path for Osinbajo to waive his immunity "on the off chance that he earnestly needs to do so is to resign as VP."


    “He can not stay in office and waive his immunity as the immunity is connected to that office and not to his individual,” said the lawyer.
    Okpanachi responded to the declaration credited to the vice president that he would waive his constitutional immunity to clear his name from the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) of the N90 billion that he supposedly earned.
    The lawyer said Section 308 of the Constitution, which in some quarters raises arguments that the vice president could no longer establish any case in his name, no longer represent the law’s stance.
    He said I.B.M. Securities Plc’s case. Vs Ahmed Bola Tinubu was no longer tenable as decided by the Supreme Court by those holding such an view.

    “The present position of the law in the case of Global Excellence Communications Ltd. & Ors. Vs Mr Donald Duke (2007) LPELR-1323(SC) as stated by the Supreme Court.
    “The apex court held that the legislature had the intention of prohibiting any of the owners of the offices mentioned in section 308(1) of the Constitution from instituting cases in their tenure names.
    “They would have expressly indicated that, and since there were no such express provisions, they are entitled to initiate court proceedings during their tenure,” said Okpanachi.
