My presidency to guarantee national stability – Osinbajo


Vice President Yemi Osinbajo visited Calabar, the Cross River State capital, on Thursday, to seek the support of delegates ahead of the presidential primary of the All Progressives Congress.

Speaking at an event he had with traditional rulers in the state, he solicited their support to actualise his presidential ambition.

He said the wealth of experience he had gained in the last seven years when he began working with the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), would be brought to bear if he is privileged to lead the nation in 2023.

Osinbajo, who spoke with the monarchs before having an audience with the party delegates, said, “On April 11, 2022, I formally declared my intention to run for the president of Nigeria after serving for seven years in the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“I have the great fortune to have been exposed by the PMB administration to governance.

“I know the intricacies of our country Nigeria. I think all the experience that I have gathered throughout this period has come to bring such a wealth of experience to bear.”

“It is my desire not just to tell you that I am contesting for that office, not just to keep the country’s peace but to ensure that the nation is stable.”

In his welcome remarks, the Chairman of Cross River State Traditional Rulers Council, Dr. Etiyin Edet, lauded Osinbajo for having the courage to vie for the presidential seat.

He said, “God cannot destroy what he has ordained. You are like Mount Zion that can never be removed. Let me tell you that the people you see here are invincible delegates.

“We will be invincible spirits in all the venues in the primaries that are going to take place.”
