Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has denied nursing any agenda to contest for the President of Nigeria in 2023, saying he is consumed into delivering his responsibilities attached to his current office.
The Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to Osinbajo, Laolu Akande, who said this in Abuja said his major focus was to support President Muhammadu Buhari until their tenure elapses.
He denied that he is facing any attack from any quarters owing to his presidential ambition in 2023.
“I’m his spokesperson and all I know he wants to do is to do this job that he has been given very well and he doesn’t have any other plans right now about any such thing. I can tell you that clearly.
“He has said to me several times, see Laolu, this is not a monarchy, we are going to be here for four or at best eight years, let’s just focus and do the work so that when we are gone, people will say we did this and that. So, he is entirely consumed with the job.
“I’m his spokesperson and we have not talked about what he is going to do in 2023. What’s the point?” Akande said.
