    Good one, Sir.

  • Shuaibu Bola Victor

    This man self. Is he not away that that there is constitutional provision for the functions of Vice – President? Funny character.

  • PROF

    Osibanjo seem to be reading the handwriting on the wall. Now thats foresight .Spare tyres are hardly used 🙂

  • Elis Davia

    The position of the vice president is not a spare Tyre. If you’re having the feeling that they will turn you into a spare Tyre, is time to quit.

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    Migdet Pastor Osinbajo, if you were truly a Minister of the Gospel, you would have abandoned Insurgent Buhari’s toxic ticket by now. In point of fact, you would not be caught anywhere near the likes of certificate forger, Bola Tinubu and the Islamic Brotherhood of Nigeria. You are a disgrace to RCCG and to Christianity in general.

    • Ghen-Ghen

      You need help dude…

      • emmanuel

        Osinbajo dey chop Lagos money from Alfa Beta. So how Buhari go take try Tinubu with the USD5,000.00 bribe for vote he paid to all APC voters for Buhari to win the candidacy?

        You need help, spritual and psychiatry!

        • Ghen-Ghen

          This guy is sick and retarded lol…disadvantages of social media..it gives dumbf**ks like this moron an opinion too…spreading malicious rumours…
          …WE WANT CHANGE…..!!!!…you seriously need help dude…just trying to assist you with my honest advice…

  • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

    It a real shame that a Professor of law would be cavorting with a certificate forger and perjurer like Mohammed Buhari. Whatever happened to good judgement!

    • Ghen-Ghen

      You are very daft…go and study history..Gen Buhari is one of those who tried their best to change Nigeria..ignore the draconian laws..all those who built the civilised world were normal individuals…most of them did not even have any education…read history..Nigerians at times..gullible people like you are preventing individuals like me from returning back home,you see change yet you refuse to embrace it..

      • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

        You have a franchise for stupidity.

        • Ghen-Ghen

          Pity you…ignorance is bliss…Lol..

  • Uzoma

    There is no such thing as a co-presidency. So whether anyone wants to accept it or not, the vice president is a spare tyre. And why should that be a problem?

  • Eze1

    Are you Kidding me? WHat Ministry will you manage? VPs remains spare tyre jor

    • Okey

      the man is confirming our fears that he is to fill a gap soon

  • emmanuel

    This man could not stand Tinubu when he was instructed not to go ahead in defense of the Sharia Banking case against Sanusi and CBN by some Christian groups three years ago and he surreptitiously withdrew the case in obedience to his master – Tinubu (without the knowledge of his principals) and calling the blough of the man he pretend to serve – Jesus Christ.

    This same man says he will not be a spare tyre.

    He may be right, because his resignation letter may already be with Tinubu like he wanted Bakare to do.

    Osinbajo has two masters – Jesus Christ and Tinubu and he would rather serve the one from whom his Alfa Beta chop comes from

  • Lanre

    Amin, insha Allah.
    Amen, IJN.
    Ase wa ni tireke.

  • emmanuel

    lift the veil off Alfa Beta and you will find the Osinbajo man there – Crooks

  • Garden-City Boy

    Okay then….Buhari will put you in the front tire.

    • Okey

      Unless, Osinbanjo has a foreknowledge of what the rest of us don’t know. Otherwise, the Constitution of Nigeria is clear, the Vice President is a spare tire no more, no less.

  • Okey

    Prof. Osinbanjo, is this a confirmation of the hidden agenda for seconding you to Buhari ?

  • Advocate

    YOU GUYS (PDP E-RATS) ARE EMPTY NOISE MAKERS. CHECK THE HISTORY OF NIGERIA – ECONOMY, INFRAS AND SOME DEPARTMENTS ARE ALWAYS UNDER THE VP’S OFFICE. HE’S NOT SAYING ANYTHING NEW. BUT IN GEJ’S GOVT WE HAVE A SEMI-ILLITERATE THAT COULD NOT EVEN SPEAK PROPER ENGLISH, READING FROM ALREADY PREPARED NOTES IN A STAGE-MANAGED DEBATE IS THE CURRENT STALE VP. TAHT’A S ALL

  • Nwaizu

    Well Pastor not a spare tyre ha! Well it seems their might be another maradona imposition by APC. Could this combination be another Yardua – Good luck scenario. Hope the Lungs, heart and Liver of the Khadi Generallismo is bam. We do not want a pamu president if it works for APC.
