Group Urge VP Yemi Osinbajo To Run For President In 2023

The Osinbajo Grassroots Organisation (OGO), has urged the Vice President to contest for presidency in 2023.
The group described Osinbajo as “a neutraliser and stabiliser”, who had provided the backbone for President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

Members of the group said this on Sunday, 8th August 2021, during the second edition of Osinbajo’s Day which was held in Abuja with the theme: “Run, Osinbajo run: The future beckons, in Abuja.”

Among them were the Director-General, Advocacy for Good Governance, Hussain Coomassie, and a retired veteran journalist, Akin Makanjuola.

Some of the placards on display at the event had inscriptions such as ‘In Osinbajo, we see a loyal leader’, ‘2023: Let Osinbajo lead’, ‘Nigerians love Osinbajo’, ‘Great Nigeria, Great Nation, Great Osinbajo’, ‘Thank you, Buhari for giving us Osinbajo’ and ‘Osinbajo: The future beckons.’

Funsho Ojo, the Convener of OGO, in his speech titled: “Unhappy is the land that has no heroes”, said the VP has been adopted as their role model.

He said, “What is this project? The project is the celebration of a man we have adopted as our role model, a man we are all proud of, a man in whose hands, as young men and women, we can entrust our future. It is for this reason and many more that we have chosen, a personal sacrifice, to build a movement around him.

“We are appealing to Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to throw his hat into the ring and take up higher responsibility having worked diligently with the President and with great results to show.
