Osinbajo disowns purported 2023 presidential campaign
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has distanced himself from a website galvanising support for his purported presidential ambition in 2023.
The nation’s second citizen said he was focused on addressing the key issues ailing Nigeria. In a statement by his spokesman, Laolu Akande, the Vice President insisted that the campaign was an unnecessary enterprise.
“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 mobilising 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,” the document read in part.
