"Withdraw From 2023 Presidential Race"- APC Chieftain Warns Osinbajo

 Joe Igbokwe, a senior member of the All Progressives Congress (APto C), has advised Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to "show respect and reverse his decision to contest for the presidential campaign in 2023."

After months of tepid denials, Osinbajo officially revealed his intention to run for president, according to the Aynaijang News.

The VP will be up against APC strong contenders such as Bola Tinubu, and former governor of Lagos State; Rotimi Amaechi, former governor of Imo State Rochas Okorocha; and Yahaya Bello and Dave Umahi, governors of Kogi and Ebonyi states, respectively.

“Let me drop it here for history and posterity: If you are one of the people Asiwaju (Tinubu) raised up and you are eyeing the presidency of the federal republic of Nigeria, show respect and withdraw from the race,” Igbokwe wrote on his known Facebook page.

Osinbajo served 8 years as attorney-general and commissioner for justice in Lagos State when Tinubu was the governor between 1999 and 2007. He was nominated as the running mate to Muhammadu Buhari in December 2014, the then-candidate of the APC for the 2015 presidential election.

Osinbajo has since served about seven years as vice president to President Buhari, whom he described as a “true Nigerian patriot”.
