The Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo, has noted that the ruling All Progressives Congress may not get much voters in 2023 like it polled in 2015 and 2019 elections if President Muhammadu Buhari is not on the poster.
Osinbajo noted that his principal’s personality attracted many voters during the elections.
He called on youths in the party to work towards building a stronger membership base from the grassroots.
The Vice President started this when he received a delegation of the APC National Youth Lobby Group, at the Presidential Villa to present the report of the party’s Youth Conference in June this year.
Osinbajo in a statement released through his media aide, Laolu Akande, said “this lobby group will need to deal with the issue of inclusion at the grassroots first.”
According to him, “today, the APC can win elections, why not, we have a very popular President who can control significant votes, we have partners everywhere.
“Whereas, in the coming years, when we do not have such a political leader who is as popular as the President, you are going to need to do the hard work. We can’t assume that the votes will all come in.”
