2023: Osinbajo has not opened campaign office, VP’s support group says

Contrary to online reports that Vice President Yomi Osinbajo has opened his campaign office in Abuja ahead of the 2023 presidential ticket of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), his support group, the Progressives Consolidation Group (PCG), has denied the claims

PCG in a statement issued Sunday by its Publicity Secretary, Emmanuel Pippa, explained that the said office belongs to its coalition of support groups which strongly believes in Professor Osinbajo as the leader Nigeria needs in 2023, adding that it is determined to get him to declare an interest in running for the office of President as early as possible.

“Even though Professor Osinbajo is yet to be acquainted with our activities, we intend to operate through a new organ, The Progressive  Project (TPP) to coordinate youth, women and other groups across the federation. Ours is therefore not a campaign office but a venue for coordination, handling of increasing volume of correspondence and meetings in readiness for the time when Vice President Yemi Osinbajo accedes to our request for him to run and consolidate gains made under President Muhammadu Buhari. 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 are convinced that Osinbajo’s level of familiarity with the vision, achievements and challenges being handled by President Buhari is second to none, and that such insight would enable a new APC administration hit the ground running in 2023.

“We anticipate that various new and existing pro-Osinbajo platforms will become part of the group to which their focus appears more relevant.”
