Prof Yemi Osinbajo

Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has declared his intention to run for the office of the President come 2023. He made the declaration on Monday in a 7 minutes video, outlining his desire to ensure that he completes what he and President Muhammadu Buhari has started.

"For the past seven (7) years, Osinbajo remarked, "I have served as Vice President under a true Nigerian patriot, President Muhammadu Buhari.

In these 7 years, while on the train of duty and service, I traversed every part of our country, meeting Nigerians of every cadre, class, tribe and walks of life, both young and old; I MET YOU.

I've stood where you stand and sat where you sit. I know and I understand our hopes, aspirations and fears from a place of relatable proximity; and I believe that in those hopes and aspirations are the seeds for the great Nigeria that we all desire.

I believe that the very reason why the Almighty God gave me these experiences, these insights, and these opportunities, is that they must be put to the use of our country and its great peoples.

This is why today, with utmost humility, I formally declare my intention to run for the office of the President, Federal Republic of Nigeria, on the platform of our great party, the All Progressives Congress.

I also most solemnly and respectfully seek your support as fellow Nigerians everywhere in this land and the diaspora, as we embark on this great and exciting journey that lies ahead of us.


The Vice President will be contesting under the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), and he has Bola Ahmed Tinubu to and Rotimi Amaechi to contend with.
