2023: Group Drums Support for Osinbajo’s Presidency

By Francis Sardauna

As the 2023 general election gathers momentum, a pro-All Progressives Congress (APC) group, Progressive Consolidation Group (PCG), has drummed support for Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo to contest the 2023 presidential election.

The group said that for the purpose of re-strategising the priorities of the Muhammadu Buhari presidency, enhancing progressive reforms and national unity, Osinbajo is a good candidate for the presidency in 2023.

The PCG’s National Coordinator, Ahmed Mohammed, unveiled this when he led other members of the group drawn from the six geo-political zones of the country on a courtesy visit to the Katsina State Governor Aminu Bello Masari at the Government House, Katsina, Friday.

He explained that the vice-president is the most qualified and acceptable candidate to sustain and improve the positive gains, achievements and legacies of President Buhari and capable of tackling the myriad of developmental challenges facing the nation.

He said: “Looking at the extant developmental challenges that the country is contending with, it is only wise for the party to choose a most qualified and most acceptable candidate to sustain and improve on the positive gains, achievements and legacies of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“It is in view of this development that we at the PCG feel convinced that an Osinbajo presidency come 2023 will bring down tension, facilitate unity and stability as well as accelerate further progress in all sectors of the economy.

“Therefore, we are here before you to seek for your support, wise counsel and advice towards accelerating the possibilities of collective success.”

Responding, Governor Masari said what members of the ruling APC needed at the moment is to ensure that the party wins the forthcoming general election irrespective of ethnic differences.

According to the governor, there are tremendous achievements under the APC administration in the past six years in terms of security, payment of pension and gratuity as well as developmental projects in the country.
