Osinbajo speaks on the much speculated 2023 ambition
Yemi Osinbajo, the current Nigeria’s vice-president, has made it clear that he has no intention of contesting to be president in 2023.
This clarification came from Osinbajo’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande while answering questions on an Instagram Live chat with the publisher of Ovation Magazine, Dele Momodu, on Monday.
During the interview Momodu asked Akande if the attacks his principal has faced recently, was part of a plan to disrupt any ambition the vice president has in 2023.
While responding, Akande insisted that Osinbajo’s major focus was to support President Muhammadu Buhari until their tenure elapses.
According to him, “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”.
