Osinbajo hasn’t opened a campaign office ahead of 2023, says group.
Glamtush reports that a support group within the ruling All Progressives Congress A(PC), the Progressive Consolidation Group (PCG) has dismissed reports that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has opened a campaign office ahead of the 2023 Presidential Election.
Publicity Secretary of the group, Barr. Emmanuel Pippa who disclosed this in a statement issued Sunday evening in Abuja said it was his group that opened a campaign office for the vice president, with the hope of getting him to vie for the top job in the country.
The statement reads; “Our attention has just been brought to online publications alleging that the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, has opened a campaign office in Abuja ahead of the 2023 elections.
“We wish to clarify that the said office belongs to our coalition of support groups which strongly believes in Professor Osinbajo as the leader Nigeria needs in 2023, and is determined to get him to declare an interest in running for the office of President as early as possible. Solely for this purpose, our recently acquired administrative office is located in the heart of Wuse area of Abuja.
“Party chieftains will of course lead the real campaign when that time comes. Being a heartbeat away from the number one job, there are countless APC members and even, non-partisan citizens across the federation who are pushing for Professor Yemi Osinbajo to succeed or highly revered President Buhari, solely in the interest of the nation.
“We anticipate that various new and existing pro-Osinbajo platforms will become part of the group to which their focus appears more relevant”.
