According to a statement signed by Femi Olaiya for the TOTT, the group’s spokesman, Olugbenga Olaoye, said this on Tuesday while fielding questions in Lagos.
Professor Yemi Osinbajo’s seven years of cognitive experience in the corridors of power, along with his incomparable CV, according to Olaoye, are part of the criterion needed to achieve improved democratic initiatives for Nigeria and Nigerians.
In response to a question about whether Osinbajo’s interest in running for President would be seen as a betrayal of his political superior, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who is also pursuing a presidential bid, Olaoye stated that Osinbajo’s interest in the presidency is not in any way an affront to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
In his words, “the Osinbajo Think Tank group believes that the declaration of the vice president to have a shot at 2023 presidency, does not translate to betrayal or affront, rather it has opened the political space where true Patriots, like him would likely align with and vote for him in the 2023 Presidential Election regardless of any party affiliations”.
Olaoye added that “Osinbajo’s declaration is a bid to continue where the present administration has stopped. He is intellectually sound, and I am certain, he will right every wrong when he gets there. He has thorough understanding of national issues vis-a-vis complexity, endowed abilities and the right temperaments to equitable, just and peaceful solution
