Presidential Party Ticket: Osinbajo is not my son, Tinubu fumes

Foremost presidential aspirant on the platform of the ruling All Progressive Congress ( APC), and former Governor of Lagos State, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, today declared that Prof. Yemi Osinbajo is not his son.

According to OurNigeria News correspondent, Tinubu stated this on Monday shortly after meeting with 12 APC governors. The meeting with the progressive governors was held at the Kebbi Governor’s Lodge Asokoro in Abuja hours after Vice President Yemi Osinbajo announced his participation for the 2023 presidential race.

When asked by reporters to comment on the declaration of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo who is seen as his political son, for the presidency, Tinubu retorted, “I don’t have any son grown up enough to make such declaration.”

The former Lagos state governor said he called for the meeting with the APC governors to seek collaboration and support for his 2023 presidential aspiration.

Speaking to newsmen after the meeting, Chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum (PGF) and Kebbi state governor, Abubakar Atiku Bagudu, claimed that there is nothing wrong in Vice President Osinbajo contesting the presidential ticket against his godfather, Asiwaju, arguing that it is confirmation of the quality of the party.

Asked if the duo contesting for the ticket is putting the governors in tight corner, Bagudu dismissed the insinuation saying “No, no, no. In fact, in the contrary, we appreciate our party because it has become a party that has endeared itself to Nigerians. We have many brilliant people in our party, some serving and some not serving.”
