2023 Presidency: Osinbajo to start work from day one



Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has promised to assume presidential duties from day one if elected in 2023.


Osinbajo met with party delegates and traditional leaders in Cross River and Bayelsa to solicit support.


His media aide, Laolu Akande, revealed this in a signed statement on Thursday, May 5.


The VP said, “The truth of the matter is that every country is faced with peculiar challenges in our case, we are faced with security and economic challenges.


“But we also know that God Himself equips us with all the necessary resources to defeat every challenge.


“I believe very strongly that God helping us, our economic and security challenges will not only be dealt with but will be stepping stones for a greater nation and a more prosperous and secured nation.”


In his address to the Obong of Calabar, he pointed out his experience in the capacity of Vice President and occasionally, Acting President.


He said, “Your Royal Majesty and Paramount Ruler present, in my capacity as VP, I had the great fortune of working with President Buhari, who in every real sense exposed me to all one should know about governance at the highest level in our country.


“Our country is complex, diverse, and rich in resources, and with the diversity and various complexities, it requires some experience.


“I have had the good fortune of serving for 7 years, observing first-hand the intricacies of our nation.


“On occasions also, I have served as Acting President of our country.


“I think that with all the experience I have been able to gather within that period, it is clear that God’s intention was that all that experience would become useful one day.


“I believe that time has come when our country calls for a successor to President Buhari who by May 2023 by the grace of God, would have served for 8 years.”


Cross River Governor, Ben Ayade, and his Bayelsa counterpart, Governor Douye Diri along with senior state government officials and APC delegates of the South-South entertained the aspirant’s vision to rule in 2023.
