2023: Osinbajo ‘a pawn on the board’

The spokesman for the Congress of all progressives in Lagos, Seye Oladejo, has criticized Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for his decision to jump into the fray for the party’s ticket before the 2023 presidential election. Oladejo, in a statement in Lagos on Monday, said the vice president has simply exercised his constitutional right to impeach. “There is no problem. We knew he was going to testify. They should allow us to go to the primary. Let him come and face Asiwaju (Tinubu),” said Oladejo, who declared his interest in running for the House of Representatives last weekend. . Osinbajo’s statement on Monday pits him against his former boss and political benefactor, Bola Tinubu. Tinubu, a former Lagos state governor, announced his interest in the country’s number one spot last January. Tinubu is widely believed to have been instrumental in the emergence of Osinbajo, a law professor and Nigeria’s leading lawyer, as Muhammadu Buhari’s running mate in 2015.

We also watched intensely as he fought to paint the role of him over the last eight years in gold,” continued Mr. Oladejo. “At one point I thought I was listening to a dirge until I realized it was a political statement in a living room. Nigerians will have something to say about the scorecard in the fullness of time. Last time I checked, the vice president was in charge of the economy. “The only demand is that we go to the primary. Let’s see how much support Osinbajo can get from party members. This is someone who couldn’t even win their voting booth. “I am not aware of any change in political relevance and popularity since the last election. I want to congratulate you on finally mustering up the courage to throw your hat into the ring. “We know that Nigerians right now need a prepared president who has paid his debt by enthroning democracy, mentoring potential leaders and being an inside helper to numerous people, as well as being the benchmark for good governance in Nigeria.” Osinbajo’s declaration to run for president did not surprise many. For the last several weeks, he had crisscrossed the country consulting with notable politicians. But he angered many of Tinubu’s loyalists who accused him of treason. A few hours after his statement, social media accounts sympathetic to Tinubu’s cause began displaying ‘Judas’, an apparent reference to the biblical Judas who betrayed his master, Jesus.

God be with Tinubu in Pilates Court when he faces the People’s verdict on whether to spare or nail him.
