Osinbajo distances himself from 2019 presidency race

Nigeria’s Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo has distanced himself from a group known as ‘Osinbajo Volunteers’, which has started campaigning for his election as President in 2019.
The group called, Osinbajo Volunteers launched an online campaign presenting Vice President Yemi Osinbajo as the “right” candidate to become Nigeria’s next president.
It describes Osinbajo as “a leader who has a clue on what to do and turn Nigeria the beloved to the land of our dreams”.
The group, which stands for “one indivisible Nigeria”, according to its logo, has its headquarters in Belfast International Airport, Northern Ireland.
Although Osinbajo’s activities are published on its website, the group admitted that the Vice-President was unaware of their campaign.
“Note that Osinbajo did not endorse this volunteer group. We have never met him.
“We are strong believers in the fact that he is the right ruler for Nigeria and must create a people’s volunteer base for him,” a statement on the site read.
However, Osinbajo’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the Vice President, Laolu Akande, has tweeted: “please disregard this website created by faceless people for mischievous purposes. It has absolutely nothing to do with the vice president.”
