‘Seun Ibukun-Oni, Abuja


Daily Courier – The DG of Professor Yemi Osinbajo campaign organization, Senator Kabiru Gaya, has boasted that the vice president’s qualifications and experience makes him a good match for the opposition People’s Democratic Party’s candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

“He has been in the system for so many years as the vice president and he has acted also as a president. So he’s the most experienced aspirant in this race. We believe that he will be a candidate for the APC general elections and he is the only candidate that can beat Atiku Abubakar. That I’m sure of” he said.

Gaya said this after the vice president was screened by the Chief Odigie Oyegun led presidential screening committee today May 31 at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja.

Another staunch ally of the vice president, Senator Babafemi Ojudu urged the party to be fair, just, equitable to Osinbajo in the coming presidential primary election.

He said, the vice president has all it takes to be president of Nigeria and we are ready whichever way it goes.

The presidential adviser further said: “They should just be fair, just and equitable in their organization of the convention at the moment it is fair and everybody’s able to carry out its obligation.

“In the history of Nigeria and primaries in this country, there is nobody that has campaigned like the vice president did. We went to 36 states including the FCT, he did not just only take questions from everyone he stood up to answer those questions. And after doing so, he took photographs with every individual and each of the delegates present at those events. So you can see that he is determined and is prepared, and he has done his own work, and he’s not taking our party members for granted. And he wants to let them know his vision, his agenda and what he will do, you know, not just for this country, but even for them as members of the party, if and when he’s elected.”
