The PDP Presidential Campaign Organization (PPCO) has asked Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to bury his ambition of becoming the President of Nigeria in 2023.
The Spokesman of the PPCO, Kola Ologbondiyan in a statement yesterday, said President Muhammadu Buhari, who Osinbajo is deputising would be voted out of office in February, 2019.
Osinbajo said Saturday, that the South West would take a shot at the presidency at the end of Buhari’s tenure in 2023.
But the PPCO said, “It is laughable that Prof. Osinbajo is swimming in wishful thinking, even when it has become obvious that he and President Buhari will no longer have any political relevance after May 29, 2019, given their dismal performance in an administration that is reputed as the worst, the most corrupt and the most abhorred in the history of Nigeria.
“Is it not ludicrous that Prof. Osinbajo thinks he can sweet-talk and cajole the people of the South West to shed their already established support for PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, when they are the worst hit by his poor showing in the incompetent Buhari administration, particularly, as the head of the failed economic team that plunged our economy into recession?”
