They Are Distractions – Osinbajo Denies Presidential Campaign Activities


Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has again denied interest in any presidential contest or campaign as at the moment.

This followed a flurry of activites both online and offline indicating that the VP may have thrown his hat in the ring for 2023 presidential race.

“There has again been a flurry of activities, such as the release of campaign style promotional videos, banners in the Social Media and even the deployment of political posters in some parts of the country, including the FCT and Kano, insinuating that the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, has joined the 2023 Presidential Race,” a statement signed by presidential spokesperson Laolu Akande on Monday noted.

He said further, “The Office of the Vice President wishes to reiterate a statement on the same subject, made earlier in May this year.”

The statement dismissed the campaign themed publicity materials linking the VP to a presidential run, reminding readers that this is not the first time these activities have been shut down.

“The Office of the Vice President is not in any way connected with the distribution deployment of any 2023 political posters whether on the streets or in online videos, banners and the like on the Social Media.

“All these are simply needless distractions from the urgent tasks of governance needed in our country at this time.

“Prof Osinbajo has not declared any interest whatsoever in the 2023 election, but 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 and working to further boost the economy.

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