Osinbajo didn’t pray with pastors for Buhari’s death in any church ― Laolu Akande

, the of Vice Osinbajo has debunked allegations that he prayed for the of at a church in .

This is coming on the heels of a claim made in a Sunday piece by a veteran and , Dr. Festus Adedayo.

Adedayo had, in the piece, titled, ‘The Trials of Brother Osinbajo,’ said he received that Osinbajo in a gathering with members of the church, prayed for the death of the President when the latter was away on leave.

Adedayo alleged that the in the between and Osinbajon started when a confidante of , who was at the gathering, informed the President of Osinbajo’s “sinister plan.”

, Akande asked Adedayo to provide proofs to such allegation while alleging that the is part of desperate moves in some quarters to create a division between the President and the .

Akande said: “Mr. Festus Adedayo’s article is a descent into the gutter by this gentleman. When a professional columnist of Adedayo’s and experience puts his reputation behind outright and absolute mischief, usually it is a sign that the poor fellow is compromised. This is the reality we face today and it is truly troubling.

“But give Mr. Adedayo the benefit of the doubt. us assume that he has some to the reckless insinuations and innuendoes in his article.

“He should then be able to answer the following questions.

“He claimed that the Vice President, together with some Redeemed Church ‘accomplices’, gathered to pray at someplace unstated in his state of Ogun, at a date that was not indicated, for the purpose of interceding for the to become President, and by extension, hoping for, or seeking the death of the President.

“So where exactly in Ogun State did this prayer session take place, and when? Was it in a church, in which case would likely be an recording? Who are the prominent pastors or persons involved that can testify to what transpired – what are their names?

“Who is the “strong Buhari ally” who made a surprise appearance at the gathering and brought the back to Mr. President? If, as Adedayo claims, the VP has been hounding and haranguing this Buhari ally since then, why is it so difficult for him to cry out and publicize his strange ?

“Who primed Onnoghen to “package Buhari inside a judicial casket” during the 2019 ? And to whose benefit? If, for any , the Buhari was nullified by the judiciary, how would that benefit his mate, since they contested on the same ticket?

“These asinine put together by Mr. Adedayo betray a more motive. The Vice President’s commitment to the service of the under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari is unrelenting. But there is a desperation in some quarters to create a division between the President and the Vice President.

“It appears that they need some well-known press names who are prepared to write anything. But for what reward? One wonders. They clearly found one , as the ’s jaundiced article bumbled from the realm of baseless claims to outright fiction.

“We do not expect an from Mr. Adedayo to the Vice President. This is the of these professionals gone rogue. They are prepared to smear others and stick to their vile stories. Their conscience seems unperturbed by their recklessness. But, again, we give him the benefit of the doubt, let him answer the questions we have asked,” Akande said.
