Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has again begged igerans to stop what he called “the flurry of campaigns going on about his desire to contest the 2023 Presidential election in the country.
“There has again been a flurry of activities, such as the release of campaign style promotional videos, banners in the Social Media and even the deployment of political posters in some parts of the country, including the FCT and Kano, insinuating that the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has joined the 2023 Presidential Race.”
In a statement by his media office today, August 23, Osinbajo who had earlier in May this year issued similar statemet, said that he “is not in any way connected with the distribution and deployment of any 2023 political posters whether on the streets or in online videos, banners and the like on the Social Media.
“All these are simply needless distractions from the urgent tasks of governance needed in our country at this time.”
Professor Osinbajo insisted that he had not declared any interest whatsoever in the 2023 election, but that 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 and working to further boost the economy.
He begged Nigerians to desist from such publications “while we all deal together with the challenges confronting us as Nigerians, and resolve them for the benefit of our people, and the enthronement of peace and prosperity in the land.”
