APC Presidential Primary: Osinbajo departs Eagle Square as odds favour Tinubu

By Charles Onyekwere

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo left Eagles Square the venue of the presidential primary of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC early Wednesday morning as it became increasingly clear that his dream of succeeding his boss as Nigeria’s next president may not be realised.

Osinbajo was rated alongside former Lagos Governor Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the front runner among the 23 contenders for the 2023 presidential ticket of APC. The Trumpet Gathered

Tinubu also nominated him as the Vice President to President Muhammadu Buhari following the victory of APC in 2015.

Indeed, Osinbajo was booed as a betrayer for contesting against his former boss and benefactor on arrival at the Eagle Square on Tuesday evening.

Things gets worse for Osinbajo when his former boss was endorsed by two former Governors, Godswill Akpabio and Ibikunle Amosun, Governors, Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti and Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa, a former House of Representatives Speaker, Dimeji Bankole and the only female aspirant, Uju Ohaneye joining the bandwagon.
