Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo visited Ibadan, the Oyo State capital to woo delegates of the All Progressives Congress, who will vote to elect the presidential candidate of the party.
Osinbajo paid a courtesy visit to the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Lekan Balogun, before he addressed hundreds of delegates and APC leaders in the state, on Friday.
The Vice President said his position as the number two citizen of Nigeria had placed him in a very good position to function very well if he is voted into power in 2023.
“I have served in the Federal Government of Nigeria for the past years. And in those seven years, I have been involved because the President considered it right, and in his own generosity and his openness, he gave me every opportunity including sensitive international assignments.
“As you know, I also acted as President during the period when the President was away on medical vacation.
“Everything that I learnt as Acting President, everything that I have learnt as Vice President has prepared me to run as President of our country and to function as President of our country.
“God is always deliberate in everything that he does. By giving me all of those opportunities, to understand governance, to be exposed to everything local and international at the highest level in our country.
