A political pressure group, the Nigerian Development Front, has called on the All Progressives Congress’ delegates to throw their weight behind the country’s vice president professor Yemi Osinbanjo and vote for him in the party’s forth coming primary election scheduled to hold on May 29.
The call was made by the president of the NDF, Charles Adeyemi, in an interview with newsmen on Tuesday in Osogbo.
According to Adeyemi, Osinbajo have displayed competency while carrying out his assignments as the number two man in the country and deserve to be Nigeria’s next President.
He said the choice of Osinbajo would be of great benefit to the party and the nation at large, looking at his vast experience compared to other aspirants.
He said “Osinbajo understands the country’s challenges more than any aspirant and will hit the ground running from day one.
“Delegates should consider the state of the nation over their pecuniary gains and vote for Osinbajo being the best in knowledge, firsthand experience, both national and international diplomacy.
“If Osinbajo emerges as the party’s flag-bearer in the 2023 presidential election, he will ensure improved security, economic diversification, infrastructure development, among others,” he said.
Adeyemi said the NDF was making contacts with stakeholders in the South-West and other parts of the country toward ensuring that Osinbajo emerges as the party’s candidate in the 2023 general election.
