The members of the Progressive Consolidation Group visited Nasarawa State on Monday to rally support for Vice President Yemi Osinbajo towards the 2023 Presidency.
The group visited Governor Abdullahi Sule at the Government House in Lafia and urged him to support Osinbajo for the presidency.
The Chairman of the group, Dr. Aliyu Kurfi, said Osinbajo was endorsed because he has shown great leadership qualities since he was elected into office in 2015.
Kurfi said: “We are here on a very serious business; the serious business of political succession. We are on our own mission but engineered by the vision of one of our elder statesmen, Vice President of Nigeria, Prof Yemi Osinbajo.
“We have gone through the various records of activities, life history, and of course, the trends of events in politics and we have agreed as an association to work towards the promotion of his candidature.
“We made this decision because we believe with all honesty that we have a professional gentleman and if given the opportunity, he will not only continue the good work of Mr. President but will make Nigeria a better place for all of us.”
However, Governor Sule, on his part, said Osinbajo will be good for the image of the All Progressives Congress if he chooses to contest in 2023.
“If the Vice President chooses to contest the 2023 Presidential elections, then you have nothing to worry about because he is a sellable candidate for the party whose antecedent as an astute politician speaks volumes.”
