Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has once again distanced himself from a flurry of activities by groups insinuating that he has joined the 2023 presidential race
There had been the release of campaign style promotional videos, banners in the social media and even the deployment of political posters in some parts of the country, including the FCT and Kano.
But Osinbajo said he has not declared any interest in the 2023 election.
Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, disclosed this on Monday in a statement titled, ‘2023: Osinbajo Has Not Declared Interest in Presidential Race’.
The statement reads partly, “Prof. Osinbajo has not declared any interest whatsoever in the 2023 election, but he is rather focused on working in his capacity as Vice President in the current administration to address all the compelling issues in the country and concerns of Nigerians.”
In the statement, he appealed to those involved to desist from such publications while “we all deal together with the challenges confronting us as Nigerians, and resolve them for the benefit of our people, and the enthronement of peace and prosperity in the land.”
