Suleiman Maito, South-west coordinator of The Osinbajo Grassroots Organisation pointed out the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo as the most acceptable Nigerian to succeed Buhari in 2023.
Mr Maito asserted that the group was “more than convinced that Osinbajo is the most acceptable Nigerian to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.”
According to him, Nigerians need Mr Osinbajo to run for president in 2023 to continue Mr Buhari’s legacy.
“Osinbajo is competent, and his exemplary leadership style would transform Nigeria for the better,” stated Mr Maito.
He added that the vice president possessed the right temperament and the needed experience “to deliver on the job.”
“Osinbajo possesses the capacity, brilliance, intelligence and experience to take over leadership of the country. Prof. Osinbajo has demonstrated uncommon competence, character, courage, credibility and compassion in discharging his responsibilities and duties,” he explained.
Mr Maito further mentioned that the group had started engaging critical stakeholders in the zone to garner support for the vice president.
“We have traversed the length and breadth of the country to sample opinions of the populace on Osinbajo and have heard how acceptable the vice president is across ethnic and religious divides,” claimed the group.
It added, “On behalf of the people of South-West, Nigeria, we want to thank all Nigerians from the North and South, Muslims, Christians and traditional worshippers who have embraced Prof. Yemi Osinbajo as the symbol of the new tribe representation of the new Nigeria that we all yearn for.”
Also, Abioye Akerele, the coordinator of the League of Lawyers for Prof. Osinbajo, described the vice president as “a brilliant mind and a symbol of every good thing one can think of.”
