Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday night, said he would rather vacate his office as the nation’s Number Two man than compromise his Christian faith. He said this while responding to questions raised by some Christian leaders at the stakeholders’ meeting held at the new Banquet Hall of the Benue State Government House, Makurdi.
At the event, one of the speakers, the Catholic Bishop of Gboko, His Lordship, Williams Avenya, reminded Osinbajo of the APC’s, Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign promises that he would not Islamise the country and would protect the interest of all Nigerians including citizens of minority ethnic groups if voted into power.
The Bishop noted that the killing of Christians and members of the minority ethnic group particularly in Benue State had proved that the Federal Government under Buhari was not living up to these promises.
In his words,the bishop said,
“the point I’m trying to make is that a day is going to come when you, as the Vice-President, will bear the brunt of that problem of injustices in our land, especially those perpetrated on smaller ethnic groups that have no one to fight for them. So, as a Christian person, exonerate yourself from this situation”.
