Human Rights Activist, Omoyele Sowore has described Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo as equally “dangerous” as Nigeria's President, Muhammadu Buhari. 

Sowore said President Buhari, alongside the Vice-President plots all the evils affecting Nigeria together. 

He further described Buhari as the worst President Nigeria has ever had.

He stated this in a series of tweets on his Twitter handle on Monday. 

He wrote: ”I’ve said it several times that @ProfOsinbajo is as dangerous as his principal, @MBuhari! 

“They plot all the evils afflicting this country together. 

“He’s in on every action of the regime. Because Muhammadu Buhari’s deceiving the Bozo that he plans to hand over power to him, he’s blabbing up and down. Buhari remains one of Nigeria’s most unpopular rulers ever! Buhari has no iota of credibility both as a human being or a 'leader'. Shame on miniman OSINBAJO. #RevolutionNow #BuhariMustGo."

Sowore was reacting to a statement attributed to Osinbajo claiming President Buhari is Nigeria’s most popular politician in generations.

The Vice President said this during an interactive session with top officials of Nigeria’s High Commission in the United Kingdom on Saturday.

Osinbajo said Buhari's popularity and credibility are crucial factors needed in galvanising the entire system to resolve the country’s challenges.

He said: “The President is possibly the most popular Nigerian politician that we ever had in generations.

“He is possibly the only person who can go into a place or somewhere without bossing people to gather and they will come and listen to him speak.

“We need that level of credibility to be able to solve problems in our country. And I think because of his level of credibility, despite everything, he is still the only one that can call everyone, and even people who do not necessarily agree with him know that he is a man of his words.”

Osinbajo also advised against splitting up the country, saying smaller nations are now looking for alignment with others to become stronger.

“Everywhere in the world today, people are coming together to form stronger units, they are not breaking up, this is not the time to break up.

“If you read of the economics of smaller nations, they are looking for ways of how they can become stronger by aligning with other nations. How does a country with all the potentials and everything that we have, think that the best way is to break up?”

He asked citizens at home and in the diaspora to promote the message of one country, noting that “anybody who looks at how Nigeria operates will recognise that we are better off in this system, and that is the truth.”

He said, “Yorubas are not better off on their own, Igbos are not better off on their own, the North is not better off on its own.

“We are better off as one nation, that is why we are strong and that is why we can face the world.

“If you look at all of us sitting here, we represent all the geo-political zones. This is the Nigeria that will succeed, anything else doesn’t make sense.”
