According to a report released by Sahara Reporters, the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, has revealed what APC Senators told Vice President Yemi Osinbajo during their secret meeting at his official residence in the Presidential Villa, Abuja. Yemi Osinbajo invited Nigerian Senators under the umbrella of the All Progressives Congress to his official residence on Tuesday night.
Ahmad Lawan made it clear that Yemi Osinbajo held a meeting with APC Senators in a bid to seek their support ahead of the party’ s primaries. Ahmad Lawan also indicated that the members of the All Progressives Congress would be prepared to support any candidate that has what it takes to win the presidential seat in 2023.
Ahmad Lawan said, ” We had Iftar dinner with His Excellency, the Vice President and thereafter we had brief interaction on our Government. We also had a discussion on the Vice President’ s declaration to run for the presidency of our great country, the Federal Republic of Nigeria” .
Naturally, the Vice President told us that he has expressed his interest and that he wanted to consult with the Senate APC caucus. He wanted us to hear from his mouth and we did and he was seeking our support in whatever way we can at the appropriate time and we wish the Vice President good luck in this endeavour” .
Yemi Osinbajo’ s made this move after declaring his intention to run for president come 2023. Despite receiving heavy criticism for challenging Bola Ahmed Tinubu for APC presidential ticket, Osinbajo doesn’ t seem worried at the moment.
Do you think Yemi Osinbajo has what it takes to clinch APC presidential ticket?
With Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Rochas Okorocha, and other top aspirants lining up to clinch the party’ s presidential ticket, Yemi Osinbajo would need every bit of help he can get from APC members. However, there is absolutely no doubt that Yemi Osinbajo has what it takes to clinch APC presidential ticket.
