2023: For Lack Of Distraction And Historical Posterity; Prevail On Osinbajo To Step Down, Project Beyond 2023 Tells Buhari, APC, Yoruba Leaders



The foremost Tinubu’s support group, Project Beyond 2023 has asked President Muhammodu Buhari, the leaders of the ruling party, All Progressives Congress and leaders & traditional rulers in Yoruba land to prevail on Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to step down his ambition to preside over Nigeria this time for lack of distraction to the current government where he is serving and for posterity sake.

In statement released to pressmen in Abuja on Saturday, the Director of Media & Publicity of the Project Beyond 2023; Comrade Adeboye Adebayo, the group says it is unfair and unjust for Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to use his ambition to distract this government that is currently running his last full economic budget when Nigerians are full of expectations from it to give them a lasting security and economic legacies as it winds down.

“For us at the Asiwaju Project Beyond 2023, we have of the strong opinion that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is qualified and has every right to contest the Presidential election come 2023 but looking at it objectively, the time is not right for him because to be fair to all agitated Nigerians who are currently battling and gasping for huge economic breakthrough and full of expectations from this government, lasting legacies of economic transformation and security of lives and property, the best thing His Excellency, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo can do is to allow this government where is still serving to concentrate on how to use its full last implementable economic budget to change the fortune of Nigerians in all facets of life and allow President Mohammodu Buhari to ensure enduring legacies as his administration is closing up” Adebayo said.

“It is a statement of fact that those who are propelling Yemi Osinbajo to contest for President despite his credentials, know fully well that he lacks the most important capacity which is political structure to win such huge election. Leading a complex country like Nigeria is far, far, more than being an orator, commanding a foreign language when speaking or blowing grammars of sweet quotations. He may seems to understand the rudiment of Nigeria’s economic situation for being government, he may possess the will to change the fortune of the country but the fact remains that he lacks the strong mind that a President needs to implement such wills and understanding for the betterment of Nigerians in the face of hawks that usually surround the government in power, hence they are just propelling him to throw the cap into the presidential election ring solely for their selfish interests and personal gains against the growth and development of Nigeria and economic fortunes of Nigerians Adebayo noted.

He then urge President Muhammodu Buhari and well meaning leaders of the All Progressives Congress, APC to prevail on him to stepdown his ambition so that the government can focus on how to have enduring legacies for its historical benefits and fairness to Nigerians as they don’t deserve distraction as this time when Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC are agitating over proposed fuel price hike, Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU and host of others are full of other agitations.

The Support group in his statement also called on the leaders and traditional rulers in Yoruba land to speak with one voice and call on Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to stepdown his perceived ambition at this time for him to be on the good side of history and for the sake of historical posterity.

“In Conclusion, we are also calling on well meaning Yoruba leaders and our respected traditional rulers to wade at the right time, now and prevail on him to stepdown his ambition so as to shame detractors who are hellbent on making bad history to repeat itself in Yoruba land as they (detractors) are just propelling him not for the love of Nigeria or Nigerians, rather for their selfish interest and personal gains because they see him (Osinbajo) as a tool in their hands to continue to destroy the goodwill of Yoruba nation in the historical analysis of Nigeria. Hence we are saying equivocally that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo should be reasonable and be objective enough to see and understand the handwritings on the wall, with all sense of responsibilities and objectivities to stepdown his ambition at this time and support Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu who has the full capacities and credentials without sentiments for President of Nigeria so as to place himself on the better side of history and for the sake of posterity; the hard way, the only way to be on the good side of generational history ” Adebayo concluded.
