The Progressives Consolidation Group (PCG) has said Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is best qualified to consolidate on the “nationalistic legacies” of President Muhammadu Buhari.
This was contained in a letter dated October 8, 2021, titled,” Appreciation for your official recognition”, addressed to Chairman of the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni, signed by Dr. Aliyu Kurfi, and made available to newsmen on Tuesday in Abuja.
The PCG, which was approved as a Support Group in the APC on October 4, 2021, by Buni, said Osinbajo is a second citizen and strategic insider who is most conversant with the national policies and rhythms of governance of Buhari.
The PCG said its patriotic drive towards realising an Osinbajo presidency at the expiration of Buhari’s tenure in 2023 is aimed at deepening core democratic and strategic governance values that truly deliver maximum benefits to Nigerians.
Part of the letter reads, “The ongoing nationwide mobilisation by the PCG towards co-opting Vice President Yemi Osinbajo as our party’s presidential candidate in the 2023 election is mainly motivated by a three noble reasons:
“First, he is the best qualified to consolidate the nationalistic legacies of President Muhammadu Buhari as the second citizen and strategic insider who is most conversant with the national policies and rhythms of governance of Mr. President.
“Secondly, to increase our party’s chances for massive success in the coming general elections. Thirdly, to accelerate growth and sustainable development for a more united Nigeria as a detribalised patriot to the core.
“Your decision for approval of our recognition as a Support Group of the party will further reinvigorate our drive towards ensuring the involvement of citizens in all geopolitical zones in this great enterprise.”
