Banning any last-minute change, the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, will ‘in a matter of days’ reveal his position on the 2023 presidential election.
A top presidential source informed Journalists last night that Osinbajo feels it’s the right time to resolve the 2023 issue with regard to his political ambition, considering the fact that the election is near.
“I can now tell you not just soon, but in a matter of days. It will be a significant address.
“Things are still in flux so won’t say definitely the number of days, but this is no longer something that will go past a few days for sure. For instance, expectations were that this week, the party will announce the calendar but that has not happened,” the source said.
It’s not, however, sure if the nation’s number two man will reveal interest to run or withdraw due to his trueness to former Lagos governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who is believed to be his political godfather.
Tinubu has since announced his interest in the number one seat and has now begun consultations across the country.
Although many groups had announced their support for Osinbajo’s candidacy, the VP is yet to release a statement on his 2023 ambition.
