Nigeria’s Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has made it clear that he will retire in 2023 after his second tenure with President Muhammadu Buhari, against the rumour making the rounds that he will contest the 2023 Presidential.
In a statement released by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, Professor Osinbajo indicated that he has no such intentions.
Laolu Akande, in a recent question and answer interaction on Instagram Live with former Presidential Candidate, Dele Momodu, said: “I’m his spokesperson and all I know he wants to do is to do this job that he has been given very well and he doesn’t have any other plans right now about any such thing. I can tell you that clearly.
“He has said to me several times, see Laolu, this is not a monarchy, we are going to be here for four or at best eight years, let’s just focus and do the work so that when we are gone, people will say we did this and that. So, he is entirely consumed with the job.”
