2023: Osinbajo is APC’s best option for presidency – Babangida Aliyu

Osinbajo

A former Governor of Niger state, Babangida Aliyu, has said Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo is the best person the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) can present as a candidate for the 2023 presidential election.

Aliyu stated this on Tuesday, while speaking at the 2022 annual lecture of the Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Foundation held in Kano state.

According to Punch, the ex-governor said “riff-raffs or moneybags” will not get to the highest office in the land, even if they offer money in the 2023 election.

“Mr vice-president, do you know you are the best candidate in your party?” he asked, describing Osinbajo as the only candidate that knows the country and has wide acceptance, regardless of tribe and religion.

On his part, Sidi Bage, Emir of Lafia, also praised the vice-president and promised that Nasarawa state would give him all the necessary support to enable him to become the next president.

“Mr vice-president, wherever you go, we will follow,” he added.

Although Osinbajo hasn’t expressed interest in running for the office of the president, there have been several calls for the vice-president to contest in the 2023 presidential election.
