2023: I’ll betray Nigerians if I refuse to contest – Osinbajo


The Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, has said that he would be betraying Nigerians if he failed to contest for president.

Osinbajo stated this in Akure, the Ondo State capital when he visited Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu to express his intention to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

Osinbajo disclosed that he decided to contest for the president because he had learned a lot and made many contacts both within the country and at the international level.

He admitted that he was given responsibilities by President Buhari to run the affairs of the nation as an acting president.

The vice president disclosed that President Buhari only charged him to be fair and just while in charge.

He, therefore, said the nation needed a serious service to get it out of the doldrums.

According to the vice president, “It’s an opportunity to be called to public service. This is the most valuable thing we can add to our society. It’s a privilege to be called to serve.”
