…VP engaging stakeholders on major issues of the day
The Osinbajo Campaign Organisation has described media reports of an alleged promise by Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to provide accommodation to 7000 delegates as false and misleading.
The media team of the campaign organisation said in a statement sent to Frontline News Online that a Special Adviser to the President, Senator Babafemi Ojudu never made such a pledge on behalf of the Vice-President.
The Osinbajo Campaign insisted that the Vice-President has focused his consultations on the issues of the day.
The statement read in part:
“We have seen an outlandish news report that a so-called “Osinbajo Campaign Organisation has said that it would provide hotel accommodation for more than 7,000 All Progressives Congress delegates across the country during the party’s presidential primary election.”
“Attributing such a claim to Senator Babafemi Ojudu, Special Adviser to the President, in the Office of the Vice-President, the report falsely claimed that “Ojudu announced this to delegates in Minna, while wooing them to vote for Osinbajo during the party’s primaries.”
“For the records, Senator Ojudu at no time made such a claim and the Osinbajo Campaign team has no such plans. Such reported offers of free accommodation and free food should be ignored.
“The Vice President continues to spend time interacting directly with the APC delegates and stakeholders across the States answering their questions on issues of politics and governance.
“ It is the plan and intention of the Osinbajo Campaign Team to keep engaging the APC delegates on the major issues of the day, exchanging ideas on how to move the country forward and forging a partnership of stakeholders whose collaboration would go beyond the 2023 elections”, the statement further read.
