2023: It’ll Be Great Injustice If I Don’t Contest – Osibanjo


Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that it would be an injustice if he did not contest the 2023 election after getting all the experiences he’s gathered in the last seven years in office.

Osibanjo made this known on Monday when he visited Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State in his office in Akure.

He commended President Muhammadu Buhari for being open-minded in delegating serious tasks to him of which he claim, aided his experience.

He commended Mr Akeredolu for the giant strides of achievements in the state.

“It is such a special privilege to be called to serve, it is a very special privilege to serve either as ecxo, house of assembly, even as NWC member.

“I am sure that everybody knows that I have formally declared my intention to run as president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“I did so on Monday, April 11th, 2022 and I did so because, first of all there is nobody that can be anything God does not decide that he would be, only God can make a person president, vice president, governor, anything whatsoever.

Many times the President, when he was away, said pointedly to me that look, I don’t want to feter your discretion in any way, as acting president, you are president, just make sure you are fair and just, don’t refer anything to me, don’t ask me any questions, just do whatever you need to do.

“I think It will be a betrayal to our country, to our nation, this is a nation that many people died for, people died for this country, if I, with all that has been given to me by the grace of God, retire quietly either to Lagos or Ikenne and go and be writing my memoirs.

“It will be a great injustice to our country, that is why I throw my hat in the ring and ensure I make the best case for the position of President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” he said.
