Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule has described Vice President Yemi Osinbajo as the most qualified candidate to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari and be president in the 2023 presidential elections.
The governor said this while playing host to the Progressive Consolidation Group for Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo at Government House Lafia on Monday.
Sule who also described the VP as a sellable candidate, said, “Osinbajo is the most qualified candidate and only sellable product that can succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in the forthcoming 2023 presidential election across the country.”
He further described the vice president as a man of integrity that everybody loved to reckon with, and if given the opportunity to lead Nigeria, would do so to the highest level of development.
The governor added that Nasarawa State is in support of what he called “continuation” of the vice president in the run for presidency come 2023.
His statement comes after the office of the vice president issued a statement saying Osinbajo has not declared for the presidency in response to the appearance of posters online and cities suggesting that he would run for the presidency in 2023.
