Google, I’m About to Remove My Immunity!

September 30, 2019

Recent reports have been making the rounds about why Vice President Yemi Osinbajo wants to waive his immunity and we are here for all the drama.

Apparently, RootsTV released a video that had Tims Frank, former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) making allegations against the Vice President, saying that he took N90billion from the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) to fund the 2019 general elections which Osinbajo has come out to say are unfounded claims.

The allegations made Osinbajo so upset that he’s actually considering suing Google if they don’t put down the video making the rounds via RootsTV.

He’s even more upset than we think because he has said he will waive his immunity to face his accusers, Tim Frank and Katch Ononuju, in court for maligning his reputation

Now, I’ve got questions.

Can he actually do that? Wouldn’t it make a mockery of the seat of the Vice President if Osinbajo partially sets aside his immunity to deal with this? Did he really send Google that letter? Please tell me this is some sort of dream so I can wake up!

But, wait o, now that I think of it, what exactly did Google do wrong? They are just a host for these platforms that shared the story. Will they even respond? Considering that there’ve been a lot of people as important as Osinbajo that have had bad narratives told about them on online media, is his approach right though?

Furthermore, if his petition is miraculously adhered to by Google does this mean that every Nigerian will be put under scrutiny, whether for good reasons or not?

Well, since Yemi Osinbajo is lauded for being a pastor, professor and most importantly, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), asides from being Nigeria’s Vice President, I’m pretty sure he knows what he’s doing. Or…maybe not?
