Osinbajo Denies Interest To Contest 2023 Presidential Election

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has denied having any interest to contest the 2023 presidential election.

In a statement on Monday, his office disowned a website calling on Nigerians to join a volunteer organization mobilizing support.

A media aide to the Vice President, Laolu Akande, said his principal is not in any way connected to the said website or the group behind it and considers such an enterprise an unnecessary distraction.

The statement read, “Prof. Osinbajo has not declared any interest whatsoever in the 2023 election.

“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, including finding effective and lasting solutions to the security challenges.

“We ask that people desist from such unhelpful permutations while we all deal together with the challenges confronting us as Nigerians, and resolve them for the benefit of our people, peace and prosperity in the land.”
