2023: Pro-Osinbajo Group Says Attack On VP Sponsored



A group in support of Vice President Osinbajo’s candidacy in the 2023 elections, Lawyers For Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has claimed that the recent attack on the VP was sponsored.

This attack is as a result of his recent declaration of intention to contest the presidency under the All Progressives Party, a position his long time principal, the APC national leader, Bola Tinubu, had since declared for.

According to the group’s Convener, Dr. Kayode Ajulo, the attack was aimed at de-marketing the Vice President.

He said that all efforts were being made to malign Osinbajo while alleging that about six different characters were said to have been sent to Ogun State Ikenne, his home town for the onslaught.

He stated that the perpetrators will be fished out and charged for defaming the VP.

The statement reads in part, “But it is a pity that they are doing this to someone who has warned all his supporters not to attack or abuse anybody.

“So in days to come do not be surprised to see more of their fabricated lies and contrived false allegations, but the question you need to ask yourself is why all these now.

“We know them, there’s nothing hidden under the sun, but as lawyers, the due process will be followed to ask for redress and ensure the perpetrators are dragged before the court.”

He however said that the identities of the perpetrators would soon be made known.
“Since the Vice President’s declaration to run for the office of the President in 2023 on April 1 people have narrowed down the presidential race in the APC to Osinbajo and Tinubu.

“People also believe that his coming in may polarise the votes of the southwest delegates between him and Tinubu thereby putting the region in a disadvantageous position.

“Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Prof Yemi Osinbajo are leaders in all ramifications and South West is their base, but don’t let us miss this point the state is that of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and not South West.

“What matters most, is that the best candidate, the most experienced emerges as the candidate of the party.

“This is not only that he is the most experienced aspirant today; politically he is the most experienced. Then when you talk of his intellectual prowess, he is there,” he stated.
