Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has finally informed President Muhammadu Buhari of his presidential ambition, InfantNG learnt.
This newspaper learnt that the VP told the president of his desire to take over from him at the expiration of his tenure in 2023 to consolidate the achievements they recorded since they took over from the opposition PDP in 2015.
However, Osinbajo is yet to make public his presidential ambition.
The Vice President will struggle for the ticket of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) with the likes of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Senate Chief Whip, Orji Uzo Kalu, and Senator Rochas Okorocha who had all declared their interest in the presidency on the platform of the APC.
The moral burden is on Osinbajo who’s declaration would be seen as a betrayal of his erstwhile mentor Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu who said it was his life long ambition to be Nigeria’s president.
Random opinion poll suggest that Osinbajo may be APC’s trump card in beating former Vice-president, Atiku Abubakar of the PDP.
