National Leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu must watch out for his political mentee, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in the race for the 2023 presidency, an activist, Olusegun Bamgbose Esq., has stated.
Bamgbose, who is the National Coordinator, Concerned Advocates for Good Governance (CAGG), said that the vice president was working surreptitiously to take over from President Muhammadu Buhari.
Tinubu is believed to have a presidential ambition for 2023, although he has yet to public admit it.
According to the lawyer, the 2023 presidential race could end up being the most interesting in the history of the nation because of the intrgues that would be associated with it.
He predicted that Tinubu would contest the presidency and has already earmarked billions of naira to actualise his dream of leading the country.
The activist added that former Vice President Atiku Abubakar was also preparing to take another shot at the presidency by keeping himself relevant through contributions to burning national issues.
Bamgbose said that Atiku realised the 2023 presidency could be his last shot at the presidency and therefore would be prepared to spend “recklessly” to emerge victorious.
“Unknown to many people, however, is that the Vice- President, Yemi Osinbajo is discreetly building a political structure to outwit Tinubu, his mentor and godfather.
“He is actively in the Presidential race and has gone far in reaching out to the major political stakeholders in the country.
“He is subtly, secretly and seriously working to be next President of Nigeria. He will prove to Tinubu come 2023, that his being referred to as a Professor, is not honorary, but as a result of intelligence and hard work.
“He is strategically positioning himself to be the next President of Nigeria. He has quietly gained more acceptance than Tinubu ahead of 2023 Presidential elections.
“Osinbajo is preparing for a showdown. He is getting prepared to tell Tinubu that, the quiet movement of a tiger should not be taken for cowardice. .
“As it stands today, Osinbajo is ahead of Tinubu politically, as Vice President of Nigeria. Tinubu was a former Governor of Lagos State. Pastor Adeboye factor can’t be ruled out.
“He will always back Osinbajo any day, any time. How on earth do you expect Pastor Adeboye, not to support Osinbajo to become the next President of Nigeria.
“The Pastor Adeboye I know will never support Osinbajo to back down for any candidate, including Tinubu.
“It’s not a secret that the Pastor and President Buhari are very close. He recently visited the President. In essence, Osinbajo is perfecting his plans and strategies to take over from Buhari come 2023.
“However, I have my own plans to surprise them all. I’m a new entrant, but never a novice. We shall all meet on the field come 2023,” Daily Post quoted Bamgbose to have said.
