The National Coordinator, National Coalition Group 4 Prof. Yemi Osinbajo Presidency, NCG, Mr Hyacinth Turnoe, said the Vice President remained the best hand to succeed President Buhari because “Nigerians are tired of experimentation in the Presidency of this country and need for continuity, experience, courage and winning qualities.”
Addressing journalists in Abuja, Turnie said Osinbajo has supporters in the 8,813 wards, 774 local councils, 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, adding that APC stood a better chance of winning the 2023 presidential poll with the Vice President as its standard-bearer.
Asked if they were not scared of Tinubu (the big masquerade), Turnie said: “There is nothing like a big masquerade or big fish in APC, every member of APC is equal and so every member can aspire to be President. And you cannot be scared of anybody as far as you have something to offer.
“We only have one leader in APC in the person of Muhammadu Buhari, Tinubu is only an aspirant. When you give birth to a child in African culture it is your prayer that your child will be greater than you. We urge Tinubu to anoint his son so that we can have a breath of fresh air. “This is where Nigerians must get it right. It is our time to make a change, and showcase to the international community that we have the best we can showcase.
“Aso Rock is not old people’s home, it is for people who want to grow the economy, change the fortunes of the Nigerian people. Anybody who is aspiring for a position is not a leader of that party. ‘’People have been declaring their intentions to run for President, but I can tell you that the primary has already been won. Before this intervention, an in-depth consultation was carried out; Osinbajo did not just come out to declare.”
