A political party called the Osinbajo Grassroots Organisation, or OGO, has arisen ahead of the 2023 presidential election, portraying Vice President Yemi Osinbajo as Nigeria’s future route.
In a statement signed and made available to journalists in Abuja on Friday, the group said Nigerians should not gamble with the country’s most prized post, but should instead allow Osinbajo to continue the wonderful job he began with President Muhammadu Buhari.
OGO insisted that the VP possesses impeccable leadership qualities to move the nation forward. The statement reads: “We have identified in the Vice President a leader of unimpeachable character; someone who can continue on the good works already started by President Muhammadu Buhari.
We do not want Nigerians to gamble with this very important decision to pay attention to only politicians, when as stakeholders, we as the youths of this country, can also identify a man with required competence, character and passion to move the nation forward.
“At different occasions, Prof Yemi Osinbajo has demonstrated that he possesses the unique competence, fairness, accommodation, tolerance and respect for the rule of law to carry everyone along as critical stakeholders in the Nigerian future.
“So, we do not need him or anyone to tell us that Prof Osinbajo is a pathway to Nigeria’s future from 2023.”
OGO stated that Osinbajo, who worked hard with his principal for eight years to jointly implement policies and programs, should accept a call to build on the administration’s positive efforts for increased values, unity, and development of Nigeria.
In the announcement, Ojo also disclosed that the second edition of ‘Osinbajo Day,’ a day set aside to honor the Vice President, will take place on Sunday, August 8, 2021.
