Breaking: Vice President Osinbajo Declares Intention To Run for President
Professor Osinbanjo's declaration Monday morning capped months of behind-the-scene – yet apparent – mobilisations that have fueled speculations and pitted the No 2 against his erstwhile boss Bola Tinubu.
Professor Osinbanjo's declaration Monday morning capped months of behind-the-scene – yet apparent – mobilisations that have fuelled speculations and pitted the No 2 against his erstwhile boss Bola Tinubu.
Professor Osinbajo’s declaration did not involve any formal event or public gathering.
Rather, he released a recorded video of about seven to 10 minutes, addressing the public and declaring his 2023 ambition to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
The video was distributed across his social media handles and the campaign team is set to get working immediately afterwards.
This style is different from how others had previously gone about declarations.
Former Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha addressed a public gathering sharing a pattern with former Rivers State Governor and transportation minister Rotimi Amaechi, who announced his intention before a filled stadium in Port Harcourt on Thursday.
Mr Tinubu, former Lagos Governor, and Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi spoke to the press directly after having, separately, met with Mr Buhari at the State House.
