Saraki Insults Vice President Osinbajo, Says He Is a 'Mere Commissioner'


Senator Saraki boycotted a peace meeting called by Professor Yemi Osinbajo who is the seating Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria after reportedly telling party leaders that as a former governor he could not attend a meeting summoned by a 'mere commissioner', referring to Professor Yemi Osinbajo, whose previous public office was as Commissioner of Justice in Lagos State. Saraki then became a Senator, while Osinbajo is now the Vice President.

Following Saraki's snub, Prof. Osinbajo didn't bother to attend the meeting, but the party met with its elected lawmakers, with some of Saraki's earlier supporters joining the meeting.

According to some popular opinions, For calling the Vice President a mere commissioner, Saraki need to face disciplinary committee of the party. He also prove why he is not qualify to be the leader of the house.

Update: Saraki have denied snubbing Osinbajo in a press statement released shortly by his media aide, read the statement below:

SENATOR SARAKI HAS GREAT RESPECT FOR THE PERSON AND OFFICE OF HIS EXCELLENCY, PROF OSINBAJO VICE PRESIDENT OF FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA

The attention of Senator Abubakar Bukola Saraki's media office has been drawn to a publication by an online tabloid which insinuated that "Senator Saraki Boycotts APC Leadership Meeting To be Chaired by VP Osinbajo"

We wish to categorically state that up to this very point 10:50pm, 8th of June 2015, senator Abubakar Bukola Saraki is yet to receive any official invitation from His Excellency Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Vice President, Federal Republic of Nigeria or through any other source for any meeting; political, social or otherwise.

Understanding the importance of last-minute consultation required for the inauguration of the 8th Assembly, Senator Saraki has been attending to meetings with colleagues and friends on the program for the 8th assembly.

Senator Saraki having been in public service in different capacity knows the importance of respecting the office and person of the Vice President. And therefore advise those spreading false news to cease and desist.

Senator Saraki therefore, uses this opportunity to assure His Excellency, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, Vice President of Federal Republic of Nigeria of his highest regards.
