Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has dismissed speculation that he will run again for the position in the 2023 general elections.
Osinbajo media aide, Laolu Akande, on Monday, in statement on Monday, denied link with a WhatsApp platform and website suggesting that the Vice president has “quietly” declared interest in the 2023 election.
“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.
“Therefore, we ask that people desist from such unhelpful permutations while we all deal together with the challenges confronting us as Nigerians, and resolve them for the benefit of our people, peace and prosperity in the land,” he said.
Osinbajo also described the moves as unnecessary distractions, adding that he has no link with the volunteer group mobilising support for him ahead of the 2023 presidential poll.
