The Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, has solicited the support of the senators of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for his presidential ambition.
He made the request on Tuesday when he hosted the lawmakers to an iftar dinner at the Aguda House within the Presidential Villa in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
