A political group reveals that there are fresh plots aimed at tarnishing the image of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

A couple of political actors from within the presidency, referred to as the cabal, are behind these plots, the group has shared.

Pulse reports that the group, which calls itself the Initiative to Save Democracy (ISD), says there is a calculated attempt by the cabal in cahoots with some southwest leaders to peddle outright falsehood, fake news and lies against the vice president.

In a statement sent to Pulse and signed by Peter Oladele, Secretary of ISD, the group says it has reliable information that the cabal will stop at nothing to distract the vice president from doing his work.

The group adds that the cabal is working tirelessly behind the scenes to malign the vice president and impugn his integrity; especially after it became clear they couldn’t pin anything on him.

“The first thing they attempted to do was to destroy the relationship between the president and vice president but that has not worked despite deploying different strategies from inside and outside.

“Then they tried to malign the vice president’s reputation by throwing up all sorts of trumped-up charges against him but with no evidence of wrongdoing that soon crumbled.

“They even referred to the N5.8 billion NEMA Emergency Intervention, the N90 billion FIRS Campaign Fund, and other fake news but all those failed too because they were fake news from the beginning. They even went after those who have backed the vice president,” the statement reads.

ISD then explained that the cabal is cooking more fake news and lies against Prof. Osinbajo in collaboration with some political leaders from the southwest region of the country.

“In the coming days and week, there will be fake news and lies about the vice president in the media and social media space yet again, most of it fabricated by the cabal and some people who claim to be southwest leaders, but again it will fail.

“The plan of the cabal is to ensure that they distract the vice president every week with some fake news. What this will ultimately mean is that instead of him to focus on the work he is doing for Nigeria, he will be concerned about the fake news and lies,” ISD adds.
