2023: Yemi Osinbajo, asked to step down for Tinubu



Over the weekend, it was reported that the vice presidency, Yemi Osinbajo was asked to step down for the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the presidential race.

However, Osinbajo’s campaign council through a statement issued by its Chairman, Richard Akinnola II said the carriers of the fake news are “afraid of the huge political support base of the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.”

The statement by Akinola said: “Regarding the fake news making the rounds that Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has stepped down, be aware that this is just the handiwork of those who are afraid of the huge and rising political support base of the Vice President as the primaries draw near.

“Prof. Osinbajo is not contemplating any such idea as all available empirical data and ensuing developments strongly demonstrate that the VP is the leading aspirant.

“The latest of such is the recently completed report of the party’s Presidential Screening Committee that shows he is the leading APC presidential aspirant.

“We want to assure all Nigerians that the PYO Presidential Campaign team is ready for the primaries and very sure of victory.

“It is our earnest expectation that all delegates participate fully in the political process and provide the right direction for the future of our country as we prepare for our party’s presidential primary.”
