Ogun ex-LG chairman, others rally support for Osinbajo - The Punch

STAKEHOLDERS from the 35 wards of the Remo Federal Constituency of Ogun State have called on Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to declare his interest to contest the presidency in the 2023 polls.

The group, under the auspices of President Yemi Osinbajo 2023, led by a former Chairman of Remo North Local Government and erstwhile Chairman of Association of Local Government of Nigeria in Ogun State, John Obafemi, said this after a solidarity walk held to show their support for the VP.

Addressing the public during the walk, a statement by the group quoted Obafemi as saying, “It is glaring to all that Professor Yemi Osinbajo is a gift from God. He is naturally endowed with wisdom from above. He has always been a star shining from his secondary school days at Igbobi College. His impressive records for eight years as the Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice in Lagos is there for all testifying that he is one of the rare gifted world leaders.

“As Vice President, he has supported President Buhari to move the country forward. It is the strong opinion and desire of the people of Remo land to have our proud son, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, as the next president of the country. We have the assurance that with someone so gifted like him at the helms of affairs things will surely be much better.

He added, “We have, therefore, come unto you as our father in Remo land to present this letter to you which is written by sons and daughters of Remo land asking Prof Yemi Osinbajo to, as a matter of urgency, declare interest to run for the presidential seat in 2023. We plead with you, Kabiyesi, to help us ensure that this letter gets to your son in Abuja.”
