Professor Yemi Osinbajo, the vice president and a candidate for the presidency in 2023, has stated that he owes no one any allegiance other than the pledge he took to Nigerians when he took office in 2015.
On Tuesday, April 26, during his political consultations in Ogun state, Osinbajo stated this.
He said this despite speculations that his choice to run for President was a betrayal of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, his former principal and erstwhile political godfather, who had also revealed his presidential ambitions ahead of 2023.
Osinbajo, speaking to his supporters in Ogun, said:
”After all I have learnt, if called upon to serve the nation, should I say No? I have decided that I will run for the office. I have sworn an oath to the Federal Republic of Nigeria. It is an oath to our people; our children and the future of Nigeria. I owe nobody else any allegiance outside the oath.”
