The Office of the Vice President says it is not in any way connected with the distribution and deployment of any 2023 political posters whether on the streets or in online videos, banners and the like on the Social Media.
This is as a result of what the office described as a flurry of activities, such as the release of campaign style promotional videos, banners in the Social Media and even the deployment of political posters in some parts of the country, including the FCT and Kano, insinuating that the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, has joined the 2023 Presidential Race.
A release by Laolu Akande Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity in the office of the Vice President said these are simply needless distractions from the urgent tasks of governance needed in the country at this time.
The release said the Vice President has not declared any interest whatsoever in the 2023 election, but he is rather focused on working in his capacity as Vice President in the current administration to address all the compelling issues in the country and concerns of Nigerians, including finding effective and lasting solutions to the security challenges and working to further boost the economy.
The release therefore advised that people desist from such publications while all deal together with the challenges confronting the country , and resolve them for the benefit of the people and the enthronement of peace and prosperity in the land.
