Presidential Race 2023: Finally, Osinbajo Notifies Buhari Of Ambition

The Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has reportedly informed President Muhammadu Buhari about his decision to contest the 2023 presidency.

Prof. Osinbajo is yet to officially declare his intention, Daily Trust quoted credible sources to have confirmed the Vice President has informed Buhari of his 2023 presidential ambition.

According to the sources, Osinbajo wants to step into Buhari’s shoes to continue implementing the policies initiated by the current administration.

“Certainly, VP Osinbajo has told the president that he wants to succeed him,” one of the sources said.

“The vice president had first consulted some prominent Nigerians who encouraged him to vie for the presidency and they also encouraged him to tell the president himself.

“They told him not to allow a third party to tell the president so that the ambition will not be misconstrued,” the source added.

Another source stated that after listening to Osinbajo, President Buhari gave him his blessings just the way he has done to others who indicated interest before him.

“Buhari smiled in his usual characteristic manner…he listened to the VP carefully and while responding, he gave him the green light and wished him well without giving him any commitment or assurance of supporting him ahead of other contenders.

“He blessed the intention just the way he blessed Tinubu when he visited him in the Villa and unveiled his plan to vie for the presidency.

“And I think the president is being careful. Remember what he said while granting an interview to a national television,” the source said.
