Former National Secretary of the Labour Party, Kayode Ajulo, has asked the All Progressives Congress (APC) to make Vice President Yemi Osinbajo their Presidential candidate, if they are serious about winning the 2023 Presidential election.
Speaking during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Ajulo said most governors of the APC and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are backing Osinbajo for the 2023 presidency.
He believes that Osinbajo has performed exceedingly well within the last seven years in office to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
“If the APC is so serious in winning the 2023 presidential election, the only person seen as the best marketable candidate is Osinbajo.

“We need to distinguish the office of the Vice President and the personality of Professor Yemi Osinbajo. As it is, his running for this election is non-negotiable,” he said.
“I can say that authoritatively and I think those in the presidency are listening. He has that fundamental right of first refusal to that ticket, particularly being the vice president of the country.

“If he can be vice president for so long, he should be the next President. I want to believe that the leadership of the party should believe that that is the position.
