Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State says governors serving under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will support the candidacy of Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo if he indicated interest in vying for the 2023 presidential election.
Naija News reports that the Governor stated this on Monday when he met with members of the Progressives Consolidation Group (PCG) in Lafia, the state capital.
Although Osinbajo has not thrown his hat into the 2023 presidential ring, the group said it was in Nasarawa to solicit the governor’s support for the Vice President.
Sule asserted that APC governors will support Osinbajo, stressing that he is a “sellable” candidate.
“Our concern is how we will sustain the party beyond President Buhari. So, if you come up with the idea, you know you will not only get my attention but the attention of every progressive governor in the country.
“So, if you are going about to sell this man, I want you to know that not every product is sellable but Osinbajo is sellable.
“I pray that all the work you are doing now will not be in vain. It will be good for our party and the progress of this country,” Sule said.
In his remarks, chairman of the group, Aliyu Kurfi said, “We are here sir on a very serious business, the serious business of political succession. We are on our mission but engineered by the vision of one of our elder statesmen, Vice-President of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo”.
