All Progressive Congress senatorial aspirant and three time governorship Candidate in Ogun State Gboyega Nasir Isiaka said that he doesn’t see the Vice President Osibajo declaration as a betrayal to Tinubu.
Isiaka disclosed this when he led hundreds of Ogun residents under the aegis of “the New Tribe, Ogun State”, on a solidarity walk for the presidential ambition of Yemi Osinbajo, in Abeokuta on Monday.
The walk came few hours after Osinbajo electronically declared his intention to run the presidential race in 2023.
The VP, in a seven minutes video, had at the early hours of Monday joined the race, after many months of pressure on him by his supporters to make his intention known.
The group matched through streets of Abeokuta, expression their satisfaction in Osinbajo’s declaration.
Speaking with newsmen, Isiaka said “I think it is a clarion call that he has heeded to. If there are issues that need to be sorted out, I think there are better ways of sorting that out aside the fate and the future of 200 million Nigerians.”
“This is in solidarity and approval of the declaration earlier today by Professor Yemi Osinbajo to run for the President of Nigeria in the 2023 elections which was broadcasted this morning.
“This is being repeated in quite a number of other states from the reports I’m hearing and I think what it says is the approval of people for his candidacy and if you notice, this has been on for quite a while by various support groups, so what the support groups have done is just to come together and show appreciation for the declaration and also the readiness to work for him towards winning the election.
“From the speech that he delivered, I think everything is contained therein. He spoke about his capacity, his capability even before coming into government, he spoke about his experience in government in the last seven years, marshaling the various challenges that we have and he also mentioned the various things that need to be done.
“Number one, to continue with the various things that are being done now and even to make it better. I think he had the capacity and experience and readiness for the job. I want to say that he is probably the number one that we have within the APC today.”
