Vice-president Yemi Osinbajo on Monday, May 17, 2021, made a public declaration that he has no intention concerning the 2023 Presidency, and all media publications affirming otherwise should be jettisoned.
The media aide to the vice president Laolu Akande, made known the intention of his boss, concerning a website calling on Nigerians to join a volunteer organization to support the vice president’s ambition for the 2023 presidency
Akande confirmed that the group soliciting support for his principal is trending on WhatsApp with a suggestion that Osinbajo “quietly” declared intention to run for the presidency.
He further stated that the VP has no relationship with the website or the group behind it and considers such an enterprise an unnecessary distraction thatnd should not be taken seriously
He said: “Prof. Osinbajo has not declared any interest whatsoever in the 2023 presidential election.
“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.
“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.”
