It’ll be injustice to Nigeria if I don’t contest – Osinbajo

Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, on Monday, said it would be injustice if he did not contest the 2023 election with his vast experience in the last seven years in office.

Osinbajo said this when he visited Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu Ondo State in his office in Akure.

The vice president hailed President Muhammadu Buhari’s open-mindedness in delegating to him serious tasks that had aided his experience.

He said that it was God that put people in power, but noted that it would be a betrayal of his country for him to retire with all his exposure in government.

He commended Akeredolu for the giant strides of achievements in the state.

“President Muhammadu Buhari, just out of his open-mindedness and his own generosity ensured that I was given very serious responsibilities as vice president and I also acted as president.

” In those capacities, I got to know so many things that most people will never come across, even people in government will never come across and I gained a lot of experience on that account.

 “I think It will be a betrayal to our country, to our nation, this is a nation that many people died for, people died for this country, if I with all that have been given to me by the grace of God, retire quietly either to Lagos or Ikene and go and be writing my memoirs.

“It will be great injustice to our country, that is why I throw my hat in the ring and ensure I make the best case for the position of President of Federal Republic of Nigeria,” he said.

Earlier, Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu appreciated the vice president for the visit.(NAN)
