In A Quandary, Osinbajo Dissociates From 2023 Campaign Group

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has strongly dissociated himself from permutations swirling around him concerning the 2023 presidential elections saying that he has no hand in the projections.

Osinbajo spoke against the background of news reports and social media assertions projecting the vice-president as a contender for the 2023 presidential election.

Osinbajo has not made any declaration for the highest office in the land and should he, he would have to contend with the aspiration of his political mentor and former governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu who is about the leading contender in the party.

Osinbajo’s assertion articulated through Laolu Akande, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media & Publicity, read thus:

“The attention of the Office of the Vice President has been drawn to a website: supportosinbajo.ng that is calling on Nigerians to join a volunteer group mobilizing support for Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

“Details of this website and the solicitation of the group are currently trending on WhatsApp with a suggestion that Prof. Osinbajo has “quietly” declared interest in the 2023 election.

“The Office of the Vice President is not in any way connected to this website or the group behind it and considers such an enterprise an unnecessary distraction. Prof. Osinbajo has not declared any interest whatsoever in the 2023 election, but he is rather focused on working in his capacity as Vice President in the current administration to address all the compelling issues in the country and concerns of Nigerians, including finding effective and lasting solutions to the security challenges.

“Therefore, we ask that people desist from such unhelpful permutations while we all deal together with the challenges confronting us as Nigerians, and resolve them for the benefit of our people, peace, and prosperity in the land.”
