Osinbajo Absent As APC Flags Off Campaign In Jos

Osinbajo Absent As APC Flags Off Campaign In Jos
  • PublishedNovember 16, 2022

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday was notably absent at the flag-off of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign rally.

The rally, according to the APC Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, was to present the party’s flag to its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, who said he gave out his slot to be Buhari’s running mate to Osinbajo in 2015.

While President Muhammadu Buhari is present at the rally, Vice President Osinbajo was nowhere to be found.

As at the time of the report, it is still not clear why the Vice President is not at the campaign rally held in Jos, the Plateau State capital.

It was rumoured that Osinbajo had deliberately distanced himself from Tinubu’s campaign committee for reasons best known to him.

It is being said that Osinbajo is still bitter over his loss of the APC presidential primary election to Tinubu.

Some weeks ago, controversy over why Osinbajo was not included in the APC Presidential Campaign Council headed by President Buhari was raised.
