Laolu Akande disclosed this via a statement issued on Monday.
He disclosed that Prof. Osinbajo has not declared any interest whatsoever in the 2023 elections, but is rather focused on working in his capacity as Vice President in the current administration to address the concerns of Nigerians and compelling issues in the country and , including finding effective and lasting solutions to the security challenges.
Akande’s reaction followed a volunteer group’s mobilising efforts for Osinbajo ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
The vice president’s spokesman said Osinbajo “is not in any way connected to this website or the group behind it and considers such an enterprise an unnecessary distraction.
Osinbajo is rumoured to be nursing a presidential ambition as Nigerians gear up for the next election cycle two years from now.
