In a statement on Thursday, the forum said Osinbajo should be honoured and identified with.
It reads: “The Yoruba Leaders’ Forum view with disdain the call by a section of the self-determination groups to stage a protest against the Vice-President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo on his visit to speak at Imperial College London on the 8th of October 2021.
“We call on our members and groups not to heed the call to embarrass the vice-president on the day and instead honour and identify with him.
“We at YLF believe agitations and demands for equity, justice, and egalitarianism are best fought for with high wisdom.”
