Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo, has said he is only focused on the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, amid calls for him to declare interest for the 2023 presidency.
Osinbajo’s spokeman, Laolu Akande, made this clear in a statement Monday night.
According to him, the office is not in any way connected with the distribution and deployment of pro-Osinbajo banners, posters and videos.
The campaign materials were recently seen in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja, Kano and on social media.
Akande called them “needless distractions from the urgent tasks of governance needed in our country at this time”.
He noted that Osinbajo has not declared any interest whatsoever in the 2023 election and is focused on his capacity as VP.
Akande said his principal is concerned with compelling issues in the country, including boosting the economy and finding effective and lasting solutions to security challenges.
“We ask that people desist from such publications while we all deal together with the challenges confronting us as Nigerians, and resolve them for the benefit of our people”, the aide added.
