2023 presidency: Tinubu’s declaration unsettles Osinbajo’s camp

The declaration by Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the 2023 presidential election has halted all momentum in Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s camp, DAILY POST gathered.

Tinubu, the national leader of the APC and godfather of the Vice President, on Monday, declared his intention to run after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

In a press briefing after the meeting, Tinubu said the ambition to be the president of Nigeria has been a lifelong ambition.

Sources in Osinbajo’s camp told DAILY POST that the move by Tinubu has temporarily halted the underground mobilization that is ongoing.

“Once baba had indicated interest, there is no need to contemplate running for the office,” the source told DAILY POST.

Before the announcement by Tinubu, Osinbajo was in a strong momentum. In December, former military president, Ibrahim Babangida had given some sort of endorsement. “I want you to tell him to stay on cause,” IBB had said.
