Tinubu’s running mate: Osinbajo speaks on ‘seeking Buhari’s permission’ to dump APC. The All Progressives Congress, or APC, vice president Yemi Osinbajo has denied asking President Muhammadu Buhari for permission to leave the party over its Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket.
Osinbajo asserted that a widely disseminated memo claiming to be from him was false and that he never requested Buhari’s consent to leave the APC.
The memo, titled “Permission to resign from APC,” dated June 24, 2022, referenced SH/VP/605/2./0, and identified family pressure as one of the factors leading to the purported decision.
Tinubu’s running mate: Osinbajo speaks on ‘seeking Buhari’s permission’ to dump APC. In response, Osinbajo referred to the memorandum as a forgery through his spokesperson, Laolu Akande.
Osinbajo, according to Akande, would never write a note this bad.
What source do you people even use to obtain these items? You received it from who? In any case, the memo is a forgery for the sake of clarity. VP didn’t write anything like that, the speaker claimed.
Recall that Osinbajo finished third in the Abuja APC presidential primary.
The Vice President was charged with abandoning Bola Tinubu, the eventual election winner, prior to the presidential primaries.
The Vice President was questioned for running against Osinbajo since Tinubu is thought to be his political godfather.
After becoming the APC presidential candidate, Tinubu chose Kashim Shettima, a Muslim from the North, as his running mate.
