President Muhammadu Buhari, Governors Babajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos), Umar Ganduje (Kano), Dapo Abiodun (Ogun), Kayode Fayemi (Ekiti), and Rotimi Akeredolu (Ondo) were among the leaders who paid him a visit in London.
The House of Representatives’ northern caucus, led by Deputy Speaker, Hon. Ahmed Wase, also paid a visit to the APC national chairman and endorsed his bid for the president in 2023.
Tinubu Fighting Osinbajo, a war that began from London
However, a source close to Osinbajo told THISDAY Newspaper that Tinubu ignored the vice president while he was on medical leave in London.
“Osinbajo came to London to attend a seminar and then meet with Tinubu.” He was meant to visit Tinubu the next morning when he arrived, but Tinubu had already left town by 6 a.m. the next morning to avoid seeing him.
Even Adeboye (Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God) had arrived a day earlier, and they planned to see Tinubu,” the person stated.
According to the source, the vice president must make a decision after his unsuccessful attempt to meet with Tinubu.
“Now that Tinubu has cranked up his campaign and Osinbajo also wants to be president, both of them cannot be president, the battle of his life has begun. He hasn’t chosen to run yet, but a lot of people are encouraging him to do so,” the insider said.
According to a source close to Tinubu, the former governor of Lagos State had been in London for two and a half months and that Osinbajo had adequate time to come and meet him.
“The president and other leaders came to visit Asiwaju; Osinbajo did not.” Osinbajo had plenty of time to arrive if he wanted to. Tinubu wanted to return because he didn’t want to deal with the Lagos crowds. And he came back when he said he would,” he explained.
Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State, who delivered an address on behalf of the APC Progressives Governors Forum for Osinbajo’s birthday in March 2020, hinted that Osinbajo is a good candidate to succeed Buhari in the 2023 presidential election.
The Progressives Consolidation Organization (PCG), led by Osinbajo’s supporters, was the first and only support group approved by the APC to canvass support for his emergence as the party’s presidential candidate for the 2023 presidential election.
The clearance came in the form of a letter headed “Letter of Recognition as a Support Group,” dated October 4, 2021, and signed by Alhaji Abubakar Suleiman, the APC’s Director of Administration.
“We write to notify you that the National Chairman, His Excellency, Mai Mala Buni, has accepted your designation as a support group of the party,” the letter to the PCG said.
Despite the fact that supporters of Osinbajo and Tinubu claim that the supposed attempt to set the two leaders against each other would fail, there are no signs that either of them will abandon his presidential ambitions.
Senator Babafemi Ojudu, the Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, said in a statement that neither the vice-president nor his office will endorse “this kind of divisive engagement and news reports” in response to a report in which groups supporting Tinubu and Osinbajo were pitted against each other over the 2023 presidency.
“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo belong to the same political party,” the former senator claimed.
“Osinbajo considers Tinubu as a recognized leader of a political family to which he belongs, and will not support any effort that pits them against each other for any reason.”
“We are aware that there are those who would like to cause a schism among our leaders. An endeavor like this is doomed to fail. “The friendship between Osinbajo and Tinubu has a long history and will continue to get stronger,” Ojudu reportedly added.
