Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) has called for the probing of vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo over alleged corruption.
HURIWA made this call in a statement jointly signed by its National Co-ordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko and the National Media Affairs Director, Miss Zainab Yusuf where it asked President Muhammadu Buhari to lead the charge.
The group implored Buhari to personally superintend the investigation into allegation sacked Chairman of Presidential Committee on Recovery of Public Property, Okoi Obono-Obla levelled against Osinbajo and Justice Minister Abubakar Malami (SAN).
Obono-Obla had accused the two of undue interference and active undermining of the mandate of his mandate while in office.
HURIWA’s statement read in part: “The fundamental ethos of justice, equity, equality before the law and respect for the principles of rule of law is that nobody is above the laws of the land. In effect, this means that no matter the political status of any citizen, everyone is subjected to the rule of law and no class of people must be graded as ‘untouchables.”
