Osinbajo Has No Plans To Run For President In 2023 – Adewale
The former Lagos Attorney-General is still believed to be interested in succeeding Muhammadu Buhari as President of Nigeria.

Professor Yemi Osinbajo, the present Vice President, has declared that he is not interested in running for President in the 2023 elections, according to Ayodele Adewale, the organising secretary for the Lagos chapter of the All Progressive Congress.
Osinbajo’s name has been mentioned as one of the candidates running for the APC alongside former Lagos Governor Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Unlike Tinubu, who has confirmed his candidacy and is considered the favorite for the ruling party, the vice president has not officially proclaimed his plans to run.
Those who are campaigning for Osinbajo in the presidential race, according to Adewale, are doing so because they do not want to lose their political positions.
“You see, we should keep our eyes on the ball and don’t get distracted. Prof is doing his constitutional duty as a vice president. Those people that are campaigning for him to be president, after prof’s tenure as vice president, what will happen to those people? The truth is they want to keep prof in office to secure their jobs,” Adewale said.
“Prof has said countless times that he’s not having any ambition, that he just wants to do his work. So those people that are mobilizing themselves are representing their own interests.
“Yes, there have been a series of speculations that the Vice President plans to run for president, but he has not declared his intention in public.”
Adewale went on to say that Osinbajo is only concerned with his current role as the country’s number two leader, but that the coming months will reveal a clear picture of his political future.
“In the next three months, we will know whether prof is contesting or not, but as of today, Professor Osinbajo is only doing his job as Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. He has no political ambition,” Adewale said.
Support for Osinbajo has not been limited to the country’s South West, but also to other geopolitical zones such as the North Central and North West.
