2023: Osinbajo is yet to inform Buhari of his presidential ambition – Rep.
Member Representing Tarauni Federal Constituency of Kano State at the House of Representatives Hon. Hafizu Kawu has debunked stories saying that Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo informed President Buhari about his intention to join the presidential race in 2023 general elections.
Recalls that sections of the media on Monday had reported that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has informed President Muhammadu Buhari of his presidential ambition.
Most of them quoted sources in the presidency as confirming the development.
In an audio clip of 2.08, (two minutes and seconds) sent to Solacebase, on Monday, Hafiz Kawu said the story is not true, adding that currently president Buhari is in England for medical care while Vice President Osinbajo is in Nigeria.
Hafiz Kawu who was a former personal assistant to the Vice President, said that Prof. Yemi Osinbajo is very loyal to President Buhari and he is highly committed towards helping this administration fulfilling its campaign promises.
‘’Despite calls and agitations for him to contest, up to now he is yet to inform President Buhari his ambition or declare his intention. When the right time come he will do so using the right channel,’’ Kawu said.
