SUPPORTERS of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo under the aegis of Progressive Consolidation Group, have endorsed the Vice President to run for the office of the president in 2023.
Speaking during a consultation visit to Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State, in Lafia on Monday, Chairman of the group, Dr Aliyu Kurfi, said that the Vice President has shown great leadership qualities since he was elected into office in 2015.
This, he said, was why the group endorsed him to run for the office of President in 2023.
He said, “We are here on a very serious business; the serious business of political succession. We are on our own mission but engineered by the vision of one of our elder statesmen, Vice President of Nigeria, Prof Yemi Osinbajo.
“We have gone through the various records of activities, life history and of course, the trends of events in politics and we have agreed as an association to work towards the promotion of his candidature.
“We made this decision because we believe with all honesty that we have a professional gentleman and if given the opportunity, he will not only continue the good work of Mr President but will make Nigeria a better place for all of us.”
Responding, Sule said Osinbajo was a sellable presidential aspirant if he chose to contest the presidential elections in 2023.
“If the Vice President chooses to contest the 2023 Presidential elections, then you have nothing to worry about because he is a sellable candidate for the party whose antecedent as an astute politician speaks volumes.”
