Nigeria’s Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo has come out to say that he’ll use his experience under Buhari to rule the country as president.

He recently revealed this when he went to Ibadan, the Oyo State capital to woo delegates of the All Progressives Congress, who will vote to elect the presidential candidate of the party.

According to him, the fact is that his position as the number two citizen of Nigeria had placed him in a very good position to function very well if he is voted into power in 2023.

Osinbajo added that he declared hid intention to run for presidency with the greatest humility.

His words, “On April 11, 2022, I, your son, your brother and your friend declared my intention to run for the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I declared my intention to run with the greatest humility.”

“I have served in the Federal Government of Nigeria for the past years. And in those seven years, I have been involved because the President considered it right, and in his own generosity and his openness, he gave me every opportunity including sensitive international assignments.”

“As you know, I also acted as President during the period when the President was away on medical vacation.”

“Everything that I learnt as Acting President, everything that I have learnt as Vice President has prepared me to run as President of our country and to function as President of our country.”

“God is always deliberate in everything that he does. By giving me all of those opportunities, to understand governance, to be exposed to everything local and international at the highest level in our country.”

“All of these were not given to me to sit down and write my memoir. It was to come handy one day and I believe the time has come. I believe that I have the responsibility to my country, I have the responsibility to you, to all our children and to coming generations to give everything I have learnt to serve our country faithfully honestly and transparently. That is my intention.”

“One advantage I will have is that from day one, I can hit the ground running because I know what it takes.”
