Professor Yemi Osinbajo, the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, has responded to the rumour making a round of his interest in running for the 2023 Presidential election.
He said he is only focused on the Buhari government, despite his calls to declare interest in the presidency in 2023.
His spokesman, Laolu Akande, said in a statement Monday night that the office is not involved in the distribution or deployment of pro-Osinbajo banners, posters, or films.
The campaign materials have lately been seen in Abuja, Kano, and on social media in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
According to Akande, they are “needless distractions from the vital tasks of governance required in our country at this time,” according to Akande.
He pointed out that Osinbajo has expressed no interest in running for president in 2023 and is instead focused on his role as Vice President.
His principal, according to Akande, is worried about pressing concerns in the country, such as strengthening the economy and finding effective and long-term solutions to security challenges.
“We ask that such publications be avoided as we all work together to address the difficulties we face as Nigerians and overcome them for the benefit of our people,” the aide added.
