The Vice President of Nigeria and 2023 presidential aspirant, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has promised to deliver peace and development to the country if he eventually emerges as the next President.
Naija News reports Osinbajo made the promise on Tuesday during his consultation visit to Ogun State where he was received by Governor Dapo Abiodun.
According to him, he is in the race to serve the people of Nigeria and will not waste time in fulfilling all his promises if he becomes President in 2023.
The Vice President promised to bring his wealth of experience to bear and tackle all the challenges facing the country.
Addressing members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State, Osinbajo said the visit is not for campaign purposes but to inform them of his decision to contest for presidency and seek their support.
“The Vice President position is an opportunity to serve and I have served with utmost loyalty. I put everything into my work. I am a candidate who will hit the ground running when I am elected.
“I have the requisite knowledge to do the job and building on what others have put in place. My presidency will bring peace, unity and development to the country”, the VP said.
He added that his allegiance is to the people of Nigeria and no one else.
“After all I have learnt if called upon to serve the nation, should I say No? I have decided that I will run for the office. I have sworn an oath to the Federal Republic of Nigeria. It is an oath to our people, our children and the future of Nigeria. I owe nobody else any allegiance outside the oath,” Osinbajo said.
