Nigeria Alert Monday 14th March 2022
The Foremost Tinubu Presidential Support group, Asiwaju Project Beyond 2023 has stated in clear terms that the alleged declaration of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for 2023 presidency is not in anyway affecting the operational frameworks of its project or anyone in Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s camp.
Reports have it in the media that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has informed the President of his willingness to succeed him in office and also recently, the Redeemed Christian Church of God where Osinbajo is a Pastor, launched a directorate for governance & politics to mobilise support for any member of the church interested in running for political office.
In a statement released in Abuja on Monday by its National Director for Media & Publicity, Comrade Adeboye Adebayo, the Project said the declaration of the Vice President is his right as a member of the APC and his declaration does not in anyway affect the project’s operations or the life long presidential ambition of Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“I have received two or three calls this morning from our friends in the media, seeking to know the reaction of the project to alleged declaration of the Vice president Yemi Osinbajo for President in 2023. Like I told them, I am telling the World now that the alleged declaration of His Excellency Vice President Yemi Osinbajo does not in anyway affect our activities, we are not weary, nor deterred, we are not going back on our determination by God’s grace and full support of Nigerians to deliver Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria come 2023” Adebayo said.
According to Project Beyond 2023 spokesman “His declaration still remains a rumour to us, because we have Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu declared for President on TV, we have seen Dave Umahi declared on TV, we have seen Orji Uzor Kalu declared on TV, we have not seen Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on TV to do same and if he does, it is not in anyway affecting us or our Principal or his ambition. Asiwaju’s presidential ambition is being driven by passion for quality governance and life more abundant for all, Tinubu believes he has the capacity to change the economic narratives and indices of the country, he has the capacity to create enabling environment for small and medium scale businesses to strife, he believes he has the vision to make Nigeria greater by progressively building on Buhari’s achievements in office and we believe him, we have believed him before now and that is why we are working days and nights for his vision for Nigeria to see the light of the day for the benefit of all Nigerians.” the statement read.
Adebayo noted “For us at the Project Beyond 2023, we are not discussing individuals rather we are discussing our Principal, we are educating Nigerians about his vision, his vast knowledge and his capacity to deliver greatly on the expected democratic dividends and promises of our great party, APC. Don’t forget by rumours, it is not only the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo that is contesting, we have Rotimi Amaechi, we have Kayode Fayemi, we have Rocha’s Okorocha, we have Dave Umahi, we have Orji Uzor Kalu and rumour also has it that Chris Ngige is also coming on board. So we are prepared, we have strategies and our Principal is a marketable product because of his precedence and socioeconomic understanding of Nigeria, it is a contest and we are ready for it”.
He then urged President Mohammodu Buhari and leadership of the ruling party, APC to ensure level playing ground on the presidential contest and not do anything that will affect the image of the party in the public.
“On behalf of our Director General, Realwan Okpanachi and other leaders and members of the Project Beyond 2023, I am urging the leaders of the APC to ensure a level playing ground on the presidential contest so as not do anything that will be at variance to the principle of justice and fair play that our party is known for and also urge all our party members to continue their support and commitment to Bola Ahmed Tinubu as he is the only person that can deliver our great party at the general election” Adebayo concluded.
